In Germany Regionalliga West clubs have voted for the cancellation of the season. The only club that voted against the move was Rot - Weiss Essen who did so because of the 'economic risk due to possible recourse claims by season ticket holders and sponsors'

The FFF website shows some regional leagues (6th tier or lower) in France having fixtures for Sundays 10th and 17th May. It must be doubtful though if the ones on 10th May can go ahead because the lockdown in France lasts at least until 11th May.

Or maybe just websites not yet updated, Chris.

The FFF made this announcement on 16 April

Le Comité Exécutif de la FFF, réuni ce jour, a pris la décision de mettre un terme à l’ensemble des compétitions de Ligues, de Districts, des championnats nationaux du National 3, du National 2, de la D2 féminine et de futsal, et des championnats nationaux de jeunes (féminins et masculins).

Via google: The FFF Executive Committee, meeting today, has decided to put an end to all Leagues, Districts, National 3, National 2, D2 women and futsal competitions, and national youth championships (female and male).

The rest of the piece discusses the method of deciding promotions and relegations, which are mainly on points per game. They still hope to complete the top three divisions, but are unlikely to look to restart until June

Germany are talking of restarting on May 9th behind closed doors. Probably optimistic, but an indication that the restart is not too far away.
Decision on the above was today put back until next week by the government so May 9th is now off the table.

I decided to watch one of the Bundesliga 2 matches on Bet365 yesterday lunchtime. I think I possibly chose the wrong one !
