VfB have a jam-packed schedule this week before the Bundesliga Matchday 2 trip to Leipzig on Friday 25 August (kick-off 20:30 CEST). After being given the day off on Monday, the squad began their preparations for the upcoming league encounter on Tuesday morning.
Sebastian Hoeneß’s players will wear their new third kit for the first time in Leipzig. The jersey will be launched this week before being made available for purchase the week after next. It marks the 90th anniversary of Stuttgart’s stadium and features corresponding design elements.
In other news, VfB supporters can once again look forward to a magnificent atmosphere at the home game against SC Freiburg on 2 September (15:30 CEST). As was the case for the Matchday 1 clash with VfL Bochum, home tickets for the game at the MHPArena have sold out just a few days after going on pre-sale. The Cannstatt boys will be eager to build on their positive start to the campaign in front of their passionate fans.
