Opening friendly against FuPa Allstars Rheinhessen
Hofmann: “We’re really looking forward to playing the best of Rheinhessen as our first friendly of pre-season”
Are you an ambitious amateur that always dreamed of play against the Bundesliga pros at Mainz 05? The Zerofivers and FuPa.net have made that dream a reality. A week after the first training session on the 30th of June, the Mainz players will play their first friendly of the 2019/20 season on the 6th of July, facing “FuPa Allstars Rheinhessen”. After a fan vote, the best amateurs from Rheinhessen were selected to play against the Mainz stars at 17:00 CEST in the Bruchwegstadion. The FuPa editorial team asked users to nominate the best players from the Bezirksliga all the way up to the Oberliga. 22 players were then chosen as the “FuPa Allstars Rheinhessen” via the FuPa website.
“A bond between Mainz 05, the region, the city, the football fans and the amateur clubs”
“The fact that our players get to start their pre-season with a friendly against a selection of great amateur players from the region is a great thing. The ability of FuPa and the Zerofivers to work together to make the FuPa Allstars Rheinhessen shows a bond between Mainz 05, the region, the city, the football fans and amateur clubs, which will help the further development of football on all levels. We’re really looking forward to playing the best of Rheinhessen as our first friendly of pre-season,” said Stefan Hofmann, chairman of Mainz 05.
