Away game in Augsburg postponed

Heidel: “We’d all rather have played football on Saturday”

The weekend's game against FC Augsburg will be rescheduled.

On Thursday evening, the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) cancelled this weekend’s matchday 26 fixture between FC Augsburg and 1. FSV Mainz 05, which was due to take place on Saturday 12th March. The game will be rescheduled in the coming days.

The DFL has thus granted the application submitted by Mainz 05 on Wednesday to postpone the match in accordance with § 2 No. 3 of the Laws of the Game (Richtlinien zur Spielordnung). Mainz do not have the necessary number of available players for the game.

"We would all rather have played football on Saturday. However, we are relieved that the DFL approved our request. It’s a decision made in the spirit of fair play and health of the players," said Sporting Director Christian Heidel.
