DFB Pokal First Round Schedule Announced

The DFB has announced the first round of the 2016/2017 Pokal, which includes 64 German clubs, including all Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 teams, teams from 3.Liga and qualified amateur clubs from Regionalliga play.  The first round will be played over the weekend of August 19.

As usual, the matches are played at the home of the lower division team pairings, which means that fans of FC Carl Zeiss Jena will get to see Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich Eintracht Trier supporters will relish a visit from Borussia Dortmund, as challenging as that may be on the pitch.

DFB Pokal CupBayern Munich have won the Pokal trophy a record 18 times, including last season when they defeated Dortmund on penalties.  VfL Wolfsburg captured the trophy the year before. Werder Bremen have taken the trophy home six times, while Schalke have won it on five occasions.

One of the more interesting draws is an encounter between Dynamo Dresden and visiting RB Leipzig.  Both clubs of the former East German republic earned promotions last season — Leipzig to the Bundesliga and Dresden to Bundesliga 2.  And of course it will be interesting to see how VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96 respond in their first round matches following demotion from the first division in May.

Generally at least several Pokal matches are streamed live in the U.S. via ESPN3.  Stay tuned for more details and be ready to enjoy one of the top Cup tournaments in the world.
