First Team

A trip to Brandenburg in the cup

The Wolves will face the winners of the Brandenburg regional cup in the first round of the DFB Cup.

VfL Wolfsburg’s first competitive opponents of the forthcoming 2020/21 season will come from Brandenburg. One week before the start of the Bundesliga, the Wolves will play the as-yet-unknown winners of the Brandenburg regional cup. The tie will be played between 11 and 14 September, with the exact schedule for the 32 first-round fixtures still to be confirmed. This will be communicated via the usual VfL channels once the date is set.

Possible opponents

The semi-finals and final of the Brandenburg cup still need to be played before Oliver Glasner’s side know the identity of their opposition. The four sides left in the competition are FSV Luckenwalde, Union Fürstenwalde, SV Lübben and SV Babelsberg.
