To bridge the gap when there is no football, the German Football League (DFL) has now launched the Bundesliga Home Challenge for all 36 professional clubs, in which TSG Hoffenheim will participate alongside 26 other clubs. In the newly created format, clubs will compete in two one-on-one matches on PlayStation 85 mode. Matches and kick-off times were determined in a draw.
Every team consists of one professional player from that club, as well as another additional person (e.g. eSports player or fan). TSG Hoffenheim can field a team with plenty of experience with Munas Dabbur and TSG season ticket holder Marcel Schwarz. In the past, Dabbur reached 22nd in the PlayStation world rankings. Last Wednesday he won the 1st Interwetten #HOMECUP. Schwarz is an elite coach at bPartGaming. He won the Werder-eSports-Cup 2019 and this year qualified for the playoffs of the Virtual Bundesliga with TSG Hoffenheim. In addition, he is a regular and successful participant in the TSG-Fan eCup and won the sixth edition.
TSG will feature next Saturday in the opening match of the Bundesliga Home Challenge against SpVgg Greuther Fürth on the first day of play at 15:30 CET on 28 March. The game will be broadcast live on TSG channels.
