The DFL Supercup meeting between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund will take place in front of an 80,667 full house at Signal Iduna Park, home team BVB announced on Tuesday. With three weeks to go until the annual curtain-raiser to the new campaign, the last remaining match tickets have now been sold. Bayern’s allocation of around 8,000 tickets for the prestige meeting at 6 pm on 13 August was taken up in its entirety soon after going on sale.

FCB foursome visit Audi factory

Matthias Sammer, Claudio Pizarro, David Alaba and Rafinha undertook a special mission on behalf of the club following Tuesday morning training. After lunch at the Säbener Strasse facility, the FCB foursome travelled to the Ingolstadt headquarters of Bayern Partner Audi, where the sporting director and the players took workers by surprise on a tour of the factory. Sammer used the opportunity to collect his new company car, which he personally drove back to Munich.
