The day started on the training pitch and then ended in front of the cameras: after their morning training session, the Borussia Dortmund first-team squad attended the DFL's annual Media Day on Monday.
Before every season, the DFL stops off at every Bundesliga club to produce standardised photo and video material. This is then made available to the clubs as well as both domestic and international license holders. The DFL also makes use of the extensive material over the course of the season.
The DFL visited the Dortmund training complex on Monday, setting up various stations which the players had to go through in approximately one-and-a-half hours each. 19 BVB first-team players had their pictures taken in their playing kit. Portraits and goal celebrations, tricks and shots on goal - everything was captured on film. Performances and small competitions such as target shooting were also on the agenda. (cr)
