Borussia Dortmund will kick off their 2020/21 campaign, which begins in mid-September, with a home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. BVB will also have home advantage on the final day of the season, 22 May 2021, when Bayer Leverkusen are the guests at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. The derby against Schalke 04 comes on Matchday 5, with the clash against FC Bayern Munich to follow on Matchday 7.

It will be an extremely short winter break, with the final Bundesliga matches of 2020 set to take place on 21 December. The DFB Cup Second Round will take place on the two days after that (22-23/12). The Bundesliga will resume with Matchday 14 shortly after the turn of the year (2 January).

For the Black & Yellows, the first half of the season will not end until their trip to Leverkusen on 19 or 20 January 2021. The second half of the season will then begin on 22 January 2021.

The DFL will set the precise dates and times for the first rounds of fixtures in calendar week 34 (17-23 August). That announcement will also determine whether BVB are in action in the opening game of the new season. Currently, the plan is for Bayern Munich to open the new season. However, should the German champions reach the final of the UEFA Champions League, the fixture between Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach will kick off the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign on the evening of Friday 18 September.

In other news, the venue for the Super Cup has been announced: runners-up Borussia Dortmund will take on German champions Bayern Munich in Munich on 30 September 2020. (cr)
