The first situation is coming next weekend at the start of European elite competition, when German runners-up will meet Danish Aalborg (Saturday, 17.30hrs), less than 48 hours after their DKB Bundesliga match against Erlangen (Thursday, 19 hrs).

  • We want more flexible schedule for the German teams – stated SG Flensburg representative.
