BVB, preparation: start, dates, friendlies, training camp



BVB lost the championship on the last matchday.

After the Bundesliga shock on the last day of the game, Borussia Dortmund is taking a break before preparing for the next season. Kick-off, dates, test matches, training camp – here is the most important information about the timetable during the summer break.

A dramatic 2022/23 Bundesliga season came to an end for BVB a week and a half ago. In the last game of the season, they drew 2-2 against 1. FSV Mainz 05, while direct rivals FC Bayern Munich shot their way to the champions in the 89th minute in a parallel game against 1. FC Köln. In the end, BVB was only missing a goal to break the Munich team’s streak, which has now grown to eleven titles in a row. However, the chance has been missed and BVB must now concentrate on the next season.

BVB, preparation: kick-off, dates, friendlies, training camp – schedule during the summer break

After the exhausting season, Germany’s clubs are now taking a well-deserved break, including BVB. As the Ruhr news report, the runner-up is scheduled to resume training on July 5th. As usual, coach Edin Terzic will not be able to access the entire squad, as national players such as Niklas Süle, Nico Schlotterbeck and Julian Brandt will join later due to the international break.

On July 24, the training intensity will be increased again with a trip to the USA – the first in four years. The Dortmunders organize a training camp in San Diego, California under the motto “Back in Black & Yellow”. A total of three friendlies are planned as part of the training camp. The first game will take place on July 30 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas against Premier League club Manchester United. Days later, on August 3rd, it will continue against Chelsea. The duel is scheduled to take place at Soldier Field in Chicago. As for the third test match, the opponent is not yet known.

On August 4, the black and yellow entourage will return to Dortmund, where the team will be given the finishing touches before the competitive season begins in mid-August with the first round match in the DFB Cup. The Bundesliga starts the following week.
