According to a media report, the opening game of the Bundesliga 2022/23 will be played between FC Bayern and Eintracht Frankfurt. Remarkable: The winner of the Europa League will therefore have home rights.

Champions open the season: On Friday, the German Football League (DFL) will announce the schedule for the 2022/23 Bundesliga season. It will be particularly exciting who will play the opening game on August 5th against FC Bayern. According to ” Sport1 “, this honor is bestowed on Eintracht Frankfurt – in the local Deutsche Bank Park.

Short, compact, clear

Another break in tradition: since the opening games were introduced in 2002, the honor of starting the new season with a Friday evening game has always been given to the defending champions. Until last season, this was always a home game for the champions, but like a year ago (back then in Mönchengladbach), FC Bayern have to play away on the first matchday.

Other important dates: Due to the football World Cup in Qatar, the Bundesliga is already going into the winter break for the weekend of November 11th to 13th, and play will then continue on January 20th, 2023. The final matchday will be played on May 27th.
