#B04eSports: A Hanseatic evening

The Bayer 04 eSports players face two opponents from the Hanseatic cities in north-east Germany on the next double matchday in the VBL Club Championship: The first encounter in the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) is against Werder Bremen at 18.00 CET, followed two hours later by clashes with a VBL newcomer.

Will the top trump from last season bring the Black and Reds the next points? Of all 13 clubs in the North West division, Fabian ‘B04_DUBZJE’ de Cae and Co. have conceded the fewest goals (19). "A strong defence is a reflection of each player in our squad," said de Cae who will, as usual, start on the Xbox Series S/X.

Leverkusen, in fifth place, play third-placed Werder Bremen from 18.00 CET. De Cae meets Ali ‘PREDATORFIFA’ Oskoui Rad on Xbox.

first outing against Rostock


Marc ‘MARC_LDW23’ Landwehr and his Leverkusen teammates play Hansa Rostock for the first time ever in the VBL later on in the evening (20.00 CET). The club from the Baltic coast are taking part in the official eSports competition for the first time this season. "Hansa Rostock have had an outstanding first season in the VBL so far. We are happy about every club that decides to take part in the VBL and thereby increase the value of the competition," said Florian Dederichs, head of internationalisation and eSports at Bayer 04. Rostock are currently ninth on 26 points.
