In the run-up to the derby against FC Schalke 04 on Saturday (15:30 CET), Borussia Dortmund would like to make an urgent request to supporters: please refrain from watching the match in the direct vicinity of SIGNAL IDUNA PARK.

As much as we regret that we will be without your Black & Yellow support in the stadium, health clearly takes precedence. Every individual person is encouraged to show responsibility in order to protect themselves and others from infection with the Coronavirus. Even in the event of a derby victory. Hence the request that no "public viewings" be held. 

The Bundesliga simulcast will be broadcast live and free-of-charge on Sky Sport News HD from 14:00 CET on Saturday.

We ask all fans for their understanding.
