The dates for our 2022/23 pre-season have been confirmed. You will find all the important information on our summer preparations below.

Once training starts on 27 June, Borussia Dortmund will play three friendlies against Westfalenliga side Lüner SV, Dynamo Dresden and SC Verl (tickets are available here). Coach Edin Terzic and his squad will then depart for their training camp in Bad Ragaz. The Black & Yellows will take on Spanish top-flight clubs Valencia and Villarreal in Altach, Austria. Ticket information for both games is available here. The south section is reserved for BVB fans. 

For the first time in two years, public sessions will take place during the training camp. As things stand, five training sessions are expected to be open to BVB fans (see below). On 19 July, however, not all first-team players will be on the training pitch due to the warm-up game the day before; the players who played in this game will have a regeneration session instead. Due to the ever-changing pandemic situation, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that autograph and selfie requests will be fulfilled. A maximum of 1,500 spectators will be admitted to the Ri-Au sports complex.

The first competitive match of the new season will take place on 29 July at 20:45 CET. TSV 1860 Munich will be the opponents when BVB kick off their cup campaign.
