The BVB players still have four games to go before the World Cup break. There will be a seamless transition, with the women’s handball team set to resume their season after the EURO break during the tournament. Also planned in November: the general assembly and a trip to Asia.
Wednesday 2 November (21:00 CET): FC Copenhagen vs. BVB
The final UEFA Champions League group match is coming up. But the matchday will not have any implications on the final positions in Group G, with everything already set in stone. Since the home game against Manchester City last week (0-0), it has been confirmed that BVB will go into the last 16 as group runners-up. The Black & Yellows won the reverse fixture against Copenhagen 3-0.
Saturday 5 November (15:30 CET): BVB vs. VfL Bochum
BVB will finish their competitive action for 2022 with an English week consisting of three Bundesliga games. First up, VfL Bochum will make the short journey down the B1 to SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. It was a successful trip last season as Bochum won 4-3 in Dortmund, after BVB had come from behind to lead. Borussia will now be hoping to make amends against their Ruhr neighbours.
Tuesday 8 November (18:30 CET): VfL Wolfsburg vs. BVB
The first of two consecutive away matches will see BVB make the trip to Wolfsburg – for a kick-off at the unusual time of 18:30 CET on a Tuesday. Borussia have won each of their last seven road games against the Wolves, with their last victory coming by a 3-1 scoreline in November 2021.
Friday 11 November (20:30 CET): Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. BVB
On the 11th of the 11th, Borussia will travel to the Lower Rhine where former Dortmund U23 coach Daniel Farke has been in the dugout since the start of the season. He is joined by other ex-Black & Yellows, Jonas Hofmann and Julian Weigl, on the playing staff. The match will kick off Bundesliga Matchday 15 and will be followed by the World Cup break.
Sunday 20 November (11:00 CET): General assembly
With more than 160,000 members, Borussia Dortmund is nowadays not only one of the biggest sport clubs in Germany but in the whole world too. The annual general meeting of BV. Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund will take place in hall 3 of the Westphalian Halls in Dortmund at 11:00 CET. After an almost 18-year uninterrupted stint as president, Dr. Reinhard Rauball will no longer stand for election and a new club president will be elected in his stead this year.
Monday 21 November to Thursday 1 December: BVB in Asia
Between 21 November and 1 December, BVB will embark upon their ASIA TOUR 2022 and play games against Lion City Sailors in Singapore (24/11), Johor Southern Tigers in Malaysia (28/11) and the Vietnamese national team in Hanoi (30/11). The BVB contingent for the trip, which will take place during the World Cup in Qatar, will consist of the remaining members of the first-team squad and several players from the youth teams.
Sunday 27 November (16:00 CET): BVB women vs. TuS Metzingen
With the European Women’s Handball Championship taking place in Slovenia, North Macedonia and Montenegro from 4 to 20 November 2022, domestic leagues will be on hiatus for most of the month. BVB and DHB captain Alina Grijseels and Lisa Antl have been called up to the German national team squad, while Yara ten Holte, Zoë Sprengers and Harma van Kreij have been nominated by the Netherlands. After the EURO break, the BVB women will resume action with a top match against TuS Metzingen.
Wednesday 30 November (19:00 CET): HSG Blomberg-Lippe vs. BVB women
The Black & Yellow women’s handballers will be in action again only three days later: BVB will be away to HSG Blomberg-Lippe in the last 16 of the DHB-Pokal. The BVB women entered the competition at the second-round stage and lived up to their billing as favourites by going away to ambitious second-tier outfit Spreefüxxe Berlin and recording a 34-16 (15-7) victory.
