+++ 04.07.2019: TuS Dassendorf moves Cup home game against Dresden to Zwickau +++

Football league team TuS Dassendorf will host their DFB Cup match against second division side Dynamo Dresden on 10 August (15.30) in Zwickau, Saxony. This was announced by the club from the Oberliga Hamburg on Thursday via Facebook. "We feel very welcome in Zwickau, which will be the biggest game in our club's history," said sporting director Jan Schönteich of the German press agency and confirmed the move.

The reason for this is the complicated security situation on the cup weekend. The local TuS stadium at Wendelweg is too small, and the police are also considering the explosive match between VfB Lübeck and FC St. Pauli on 11 August. Therefore, the DFB called to play the game in a suitable stadium in the vicinity.

Das westsächsische Zwickau bietet Dassendorf die 10 134 Zuschauer fassende GGZ-Arena, in der Drittligist FSV Zwickau seine Heimspiele austrägt. "Ein Schmuckkästchen", schwärmte Schönteich. Die Arena wurde vor drei Jahren fertiggestellt. Dynamo Dresden und FSV Zwickau verbindet eine Fanfreundschaft, so dass keine Ausschreitungen zu befürchten sind. Dresden befürwortet den Umzug ins 110 Kilometer entfernte Zwickau.

Obwohl für das Stadion Miete gezahlt werden muss, rechnet Schönteich "mit einem satten Plus für beide Vereine". Der Verzicht auf das Heimrecht sei kein großes Opfer. "Wir waren in der vergangenen Saison auswärts erfolgreicher als zu Hause", sagte der Sportdirektor. Eigenen Fans, die dabei sein wollen, werden Vergünstigungen geboten. Dassendorfs Zuschauerschnitt in der Oberliga liegt bei 163 Besuchern.

2017 trug Regionalligist TuS Koblenz sein Erstrunden-Spiel gegen Dynamo Dresden ebenfalls in Zwickau aus, weil das heimische Stadion Oberwerth wegen Umbaumaßnahmen gesperrt war.

+++ 26.06.2019: Atlas Delmenhorst darf im DFB-Pokal gegen Werder in Bremen spielen +++

Atlas Delmenhorst darf seine Erstrunden-Partie im DFB-Pokal gegen Werder Bremen im Weserstadion austragen. Dies teilte der Deutsche Fußball-Bund am Mittwoch mit. Der Oberligist wird für das Nachbarschafts-Derby die Arena des Fußball-Bundesligisten mieten und ist damit Gastgeber des Matches. Der Tausch des Heimrechts ist in den DFB-Statuten verboten. Die Delmenhorster rechnen für das Match der 1. Pokalrunde (9. bis 12. August) mit rund 30.000 Zuschauern.

Die Städte Bremen und Delmenhorst grenzen direkt aneinander. Atlas hatte vor der Auslosung das Weserstadion als Ausweichstadion benannt. Der DFB teilte zudem mit, dass nach einer Ergänzung der Spielordnung in so einem Fall kein "Verzicht auf das Heimrecht" vorliegen würde.

"Mit dem Spiel im Weserstadion geht für uns alle ein Kindheitstraum in Erfüllung", sagte Atlas-Sportvorstand Bastian Fuhrken dem Internetportal "Mein Werder". Die Städte Bremen und Delmenhorst grenzen direkt aneinander.
