Please note that the exact times and dates of the Bundesliga matches are usually confirmed by the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga 6-8 weeks before the match. Due to European competition and live TV broadcast the time and day of the match can be changed. Therefore our package deals are mostly from Saturday till Monday to cover all possible match dates. Of course it is possible to book 1 night once the dates have been confirmed. You will recognize these confirmed matches by the orange ‘date confirmed’ sticker.
