Marco Fritz in charge of #SCFB04

As from the beginning of the restart, the German Football Association announced the match officials on the morning of the game: FIFA referee Marco Fritz from Korb is in charge of the opening fixture on Bundesliga matchday 29. He will be supported by his assistants Dominik Schaal from Tübingen and Timo Gerach from Landau. The fourth official is Arno Blos from Deizisau and Dr Felix Brych from Munich is the VAR match official.

Völler on players' conduct

Rudi Völler, sporting managing director at Bayer 04, this week spoke out about the extravagant lifestyle of certain football players. "I'm not one to moralise. But players are role models. Here a gold steak, there a couple of players who have a hairdresser flown in to the hotel on the day before the match – that's not on," said the 60-year old in Focus. "I'm surprised players aren't smarter today. At the end of the day, only hairdressers and steak flippers benefit from the cheap advertising."

Great interest in women's Bundesliga
