''Make training camp a virtual experience''

A lot of things are different this summer. On Sunday, TSG Hoffenheim will start their one-week training camp in preparation for the new season. But the Coronavirus means that, for the first time ever, fans won't be able to attend the training sessions and friendly matches. "Reduce social contact to the bare essential," is the advice currently being given by the experts at the Rhine-Neckar district health department, among others. Nevertheless, "Hoffe" don't abandon their fans. "We want to make the days in Bavaria a real virtual experience for fans," says Holger Kliem, head of the club's media department.

"We will cover all our activities in Tegernsee through a mixture of information and entertainment on all our digital channels," says Kliem. A central component will be a livestream, which TSG.TV will produce on site every afternoon from Monday onwards. ''We will share 15-minute broadcasts on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube entitled 'TSG am Tegernsee - the daily fan update.' This will include news, interviews and pictures from training and promises to give all our fans an exclusive look behind the scenes," reveals Kliem.

In addition, TSG will broadcast a friendly match live next Saturday (opponent and kick-off time have yet to be confirmed) on the club homepage - The content offer will be rounded off by videos, news, player interviews and photos posted around the clock on all digital channels. What is more, TSG Hoffenheim will be posting from Tegernsee as usual on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube and will provide information on the club homepage. Reliable information and updates are available everywhere. 

"We really miss the contact with our fans. It's a difficult situation, but we all have to get through it together by looking ahead to the future," says the new TSG coach Sebastian Hoeness, who wants to ensure that "the fans feel close to us and part of the journey" by providing insights into his daily work.
