Deniz Aytekin will officiate a Bundesliga game involving BVB for the 16th time when the Black and Yellows emerge on Sunday at 17.30 CET in the Signal Iduna Park to play against 1. FSV Mainz 05. Christian Dietz and Benjamin Cortus will support him as linesmen. Sven Jablonski will serve as fourth official.

The 37 year old entrepreneur hails from Oberasbach in Bavaria and officiates for TSV Altenberg.

Aytekin's 111th appearance as a referee in the Bundesliga, to which he has belonged since 27 September 2008, is now his 16th with the participation of Borussia Dortmund. The 197cm tall giant took charge for BVB's home game on match-day 5 against Leverkusen (3-0). The FIFA approved referee names sport and music as hobbies, and served as a 'goal-line assistant referee' at EURO 2012. (br)
