First six kick-off times confirmed
With a little over six weeks to go before the start of the new Bundesliga season, FC Bayern's schedule is now becoming a little clearer. On Wednesday the Deutsche Fußball Liga confirmed the kick-off times for the first six matches of the 2018/19 campaign. As was already known, FCB will open the season as defending champions at home to Hoffenheim on Friday 24 August (20:30 CEST), but the Reds now know their second game of the season at VfB Stuttgart will be the following Saturday evening (1 September, 18:30).
The following week Bayern host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon (15 September, 15:30) before a late trip to Schalke on Matchday 4 (22 September, 18:30). The first of two rounds of midweek this season sees the Reds host local rivals Augsburg on Tuesday 25 September at 20:30 before a Friday evening game in the capital on 28 September.
