DFB Cup draw on 8 June

Excitement awaits on Friday (8 June): Following the final friendly before the World Cup at the BayArena (Kick-off: 19.30 CET) between Germany and Saudi Arabia, the balls will be rolling in Dortmund – the draw for the first round of the 2018/19 DFB Cup is coming up.

Actor Palina Rojinski will be helping to make the draw for the 32 first round ties at the German Football Museum in Dortmund from 22.00 CET (live on ARD). In the two draw bowls with professional and lower league clubs there will be 64 teams including Bayer 04  as well as sixth-tier BSC Hastedt and SV Linx the participants lowest in the league pyramid. DFB president Reinhard Grindel will be in charge of the draw and the presenters are Julia Scharf and Arnd Zeigler.

Bayer 04 are in Pot 1 for the first round draw amongst the pro teams, which means the Werkself will definitely play their first competitive match of next season (17 to 20 August) away to a lower league side – last season it was Karlsruher SC (3-0 a.e.t.). All the matches in the DFB Cup will be shown live on  Sky. One match on the Monday night will be live on ARD from 20.45 CET.
