This year, the BVB first-team squad will once again spend a week in Bad Ragaz, from 23 to 31 July, to prepare for the upcoming season. As part of the training camp, BVB will play friendly matches against Athletic Bilbao and FC Bologna. The fan representatives Luisa Junk (0151/26974052) and Marie Büchner (0151/55304039) will be available to provide fans on-side assistance.
The local conditions at the training ground unfortunately make it impossible for organisational reasons to hold the training sessions in public and at the same time ensure the protection of our fans. Please appreciate that due to the ongoing protective measures at the training ground, the team hotel and at the friendly matches, the BVB players will not be able to fulfil any selfie or autograph requests.
We therefore ask you to refrain from visiting the training ground and the team hotel and at the same time thank you for your understanding of these unfortunately unavoidable requirements.
