bundesliga-fixtures_540_2

Borussia Dortmund will begin the defence of their 1.Bundesliga title with the visit of FC Nürnberg to Signal Iduna Park on 22 August, before a trip to last season’s 2.Bundesliga champions Kaiserslautern on 29 August.

Deutsche Fußball Liga today revealed the full fixture list for the 2015-16 season, with the opening day giving us two mouth-watering clashes between top six sides from last season as Bayern Munich host Wolfsburg, while Leverkusen entertain runners-up Hamburg on Saturday 22 August.

Kaiserslautern are back in the top-flight after three seasons chasing promotion, but they’ll face familiar opposition on the opening day as they open their campaign with a trip to Fürth, the side they pipped to the 2.Bundesliga title last season by three points.

Energie Cottbus, promoted via the Playoffs, are back in the top-tier of German football for the first time since 2009 and they’ll host Freiburg on the opening day.

BVB’s league season will begin at home to Nürnberg, and end with the visit of Düsseldorf. The opening five games all look winnable, with the visit of Leverkusen on 26 September the sternest test BVB are likely to receive ahead of a run that sees them play the rest of last season’s top six over the next seven games, including a trip to Schalke on Halloween.

All are subject to change due to UEFA Champions League scheduling or TV broadcast:
