Bundesliga fixture list: FSV to start in Freiburg

The first home game in the Opel Arena against Gladbach, before facing the title holders on matchday 3 – Schröder: Fired up for the new season.

Karim Onisiwo added one for good measure in last season’s 3-1 win in Freiburg.

1. FSV Mainz 05 will start their 11th Bundesliga season away against SC Freiburg (17-18 August). The first home game of the 2019/20 season will take place a week later against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Ahead of the first international break, Mainz will travel to face title holders Bayern München on the last weekend in August (30 August – 1 September). The final match of the first half of the season will be just before Christmas Eve against Bayer Leverkusen. The derby against Eintracht Frankfurt has been set for matchday 13 (29 November – 2 December). The Carnival weekend match in 2020 will see Mainz travel to face VfL Wolfsburg (21-24 February).

“Of course we would have liked to have once again started at home in front of our own fans,” said sporting director Rouven Schröder. “We will face another tough task in our Bundesliga season opener against SC Freiburg, following our first round DFB-Pokal derby in Kaiserslautern. We have already proven that we are able to be successful in Freiburg, as seen in last season’s spectacular performance. We definitely want to get off to a strong start and win points against both Mönchengladbach and Bayern München ahead of the first international break. We are fired up for the new season and are looking forward to some great Bundesliga football with our fans!”

Ticket information and the exact dates and times of the fixtures will be released over the next few days and weeks.
