With the TSG senior squad set to return to training in a few days, the club have finalised several pre-season friendlies ahead of the 2020/21 season. TSG Hoffenheim will first face third-tier outfit SV Wehen Wiesbaden at the FC Zuzenhausen training complex on 13 August (Thursday, 15:30 CET), before taking on 1. FSV Mainz 05 around two weeks later (Saturday 29 August).
