DFB Cup first round

Windeck tie switched to Cologne

Bayern’s opening competitive fixture of 2010-11 will take place on Monday 16 August. Four days before the official Bundesliga restart match, last season’s double winners meet TSV Germania Windeck in the DFB Cup first round, the German FA announced on Monday.

The game between the fifth-tier minnows and the cup holders has been switched to the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne for capacity and crowd safety reasons. Kick-off is at 6 pm.

The first round of the competition starts on Friday 13 August with six of the 32 ties. A further 24 will be played on Saturday and Sunday, before Bayern’s appearance on the Monday evening, and the final match of the round, VfR Aalen against Schalke, which is to be broadcast live on national TV from 8.30 pm.
