The German Football Association (DFB) has named venues for home matches during its recent meeting in Wolfsburg. The opening international match of 2019 will take place in Wolfsburg against Serbia on March 20th. The first home game for European Championship qualifiers will be played by Die Mannschaft against Estonia on June 11th at Mainz.

In the second half of the year, Germany will host four additional home matches. On September 6th, Die Mannschaft will play in Hamburg against the Netherlands, while another international match will take place on October 9th or 10th once an opponent is determined.

Die Mannschaft will end its year with two home games. On November 16th, Germany will play Belarus at Mönchengladbach, before completing its home slate on November 19th in Frankfurt to conclude the European Championship qualifiers with a return match against Northern Ireland.

DFB director of the national teams and youth academy Oliver Bierhoff reiterated Germany’s desire to return to its past glory.

We want to do everything possible to return to the top of the world. It is nice that we can present our fans with the international matches in very different regions of Germany and in addition to the big arenas play again in smaller stadiums like in Mainz.

As of now, the Allianz Arena is not in the plans for Germany barring a change.
