First stop: Seattle! On Monday, the Borussia Dortmund first team squad touched down in the USA. A total of 26 players are flying the Black & Yellow flag in the states - and promise to play "1909% Football"!
In addition to other activities, such as the ''Black & Yellow night'' held at the the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), a visit to Amazon headquarters and a tour of the Seattle harbour, there's also been plenty of focus placed on football. Head coach Lucien Favre has already put his team through their paces in four training sessions leading up to the first match of the tour against the Seattle Sounders. One of these sessions was held at the Seattle Seahawks' training complex. Nobby from BVB-TV was in attendance and was able to get right up close to the action.
