Leher Turnerschaft in Round 1

1. FC Köln will face Leher Turnerschaft, a fifth division side from the Bremen region, in round 1 of the DFB-Pokal.

The draw for the first round of the DFB-Pokal took place on Sunday night. 1. FC Köln will travel to the northern part of Germany near Bremen to take on Leher Turnerschaft in the first round. Leher TS is a fifth division side that won the local Bremen cup to qualify for the highest domestic cup competition. 

Peter Stöger states: "We are excited. It is always an interesting experience to play against a side from a lower division. We have always managed to do well in the first round and want to do so again this year." Stöger's FC sides have always managed to make it to the third round of the DFB-Pokal. 

The match against Leher will be played between the 11th and 14th of August. It has not been confirmed yet where the match will be played because the Leher home stadium has a capacity of just 2,000.
