#B04eSports: eCup main round starts

The Bayer 04 eSports players now move on to the next exciting phase of the season: Two weeks after the end of the VBL Club Championship, the Leverkusen players are in action in the DFB eCup. The #B04eSports team play FC 08 Hassloch in the first round proper at 19.00 CET on Wednesday 15 March. Bayer 04 will broadcast the games live on the club’s Twitch channel as well as on the Bayer 04 app.

The ties in the eCup will – similarly to the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) – be played on a best-of-three basis. First up are two 1 vs 1 games. The Leverkusen eSports players Marc ‘MARC_LDW23’ Landwehr and Furkan ‘FURKY’ Kayacik will first individually meet an opponent from FC 08 Hassloch from the Rhineland Palatinate. If there is no overall winner from these two games then a third will be played as a 2 vs 2 to decide the winner. The winner in the first round proper will progress to the second round of the competition.

Live on Twitch and on the App

The games in the tie between FC 08 Hassloch in the first round proper of the DFB eCup will be streamed on the Bayer 04 Twitch channel as well as the Bayer 04 app.


The DFB eCup is a statewide virtual football competition run by the German Football Association (DFB). In addition to eSport professional players, amateur teams from Germany can also take part. The first round proper brings together the winners from the qualifying rounds and eSports players from the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL). The Bayer 04 eSports team ended the North West division of the VBL in seventh place.

Forthcoming fixture dates:

Second round: 26 April

Round of 16: 25 May

Quarter-finals: 16 June

Semi-finals and final: 17 June
