Cup final on a Thursday
The coronavirus pandemic posed a particular challenge in this year’s scheduling, with the season being significantly shorter as a result of the later start. Instead of August as in previous years, the campaign will not begin until 18 September, with Matchday 34 scheduled for 22 May 2021 – and a brief winter break in between.
The Supercup will not take place before the start of the Bundesliga, instead being played on 30 September. Moreover, the DFB Cup final has been moved from its traditional slot of the Saturday after the conclusion of the league season, and will instead be held on Thursday 13 May at Berlin’s Olympiastadion.
