The first indoor tournament of the 2019/20 season was a success for Günter Kutowski's BVB side: the Black & Yellows secured a respectable third place finish in the oldies tournament in Dresden.
The group stage saw BVB win 4-2 over Lokomotive Leipzig in their opening match before suffering an unfortunate 5-4 defeat to Union Berlin. The semi-final pitted the Black & Yellows against an East German Bundesliga selection side, with the East Germans running out 4-1 winners. The third place play-off saw a rematch of the group stage match-up against Union Berlin. BVB ultimately avenged their earlier defeat with a 5-3 victory.
