Harder13-Cup: 1899 set to meet Mainz and Mannheim

Local favourites SV Waldorf Mannheim and the Bundesliga's surprise team this season Mainz 05 have been drawn alongside 1899 Hoffenheim in the group stages of the Harder13-Cup. The tournament will take place on 2nd January 2011 inside the SAP-Arena in Mannheim.

The annual indoor winter tournaments are falling back into the schedules for German clubs up and down the country. Despite, not being mandatory any longer, most teams look at these events as an opportunity to keep their team up to speed during what can sometimes prove a rather tedious and unproductive break. With Hoffenheim currently thriving in the Bundesliga, Ralf Rangnick has taken no chances when it comes to his team losing momentum and so has decided that the team from Kraichgau will take part in the Harder13-Cup for the third time in recent years.

The group stage draw was conducted on Tuesday of this week and involved 6 teams. The other group that was drawn contains Karlsruher SC, SC Freiburg and 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
