TSG Hoffenheim's preparations for the new season commenced almost two weeks ago, and the first two friendly fixtures (3-1 win against Walldorf, 2-1 loss against Elversberg) have already taken place. Next up is probably the most intensive week of pre-season. Like last year, Kitzbühel will be the venue for the training camp; the team will take up quarters close to the legendary Streif and continue to lay the foundations for a successful season.
The bus left Zuzenhausen for Kitzbühel on Saturday morning. In the late afternoon, head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo will summon the 29 players who travelled out onto the training pitch. The first friendly fixture is set to take place on Monday, with French top-flight outfit Racing Strasbourg the opponents at 17:00 CET. Another friendly will be announced during the training camp.
