The Borussia Dortmund Veterans XI won their three group games and their Round of 16 tie – all against company teams – at the Klosterpforten Cup in Marienheide but were eventually knocked out following a 3-1 quarter-final defeat to FC Gütersloh.

BVB never really recovered from the loss of Toni da Silva, who scored three goals and was the best player for Günter Kutowski's team but was then forced off with an injury. The other goalscorers for the Black & Yellows at the tournament were Billy Reina (two), Giovanni Federico (two) and Patrick Njambe.
