The 2021-22 season will see 1. FC Köln begin with an away game. Steffen Baumgart’s side will take on FC Carl Zeiss Jena away from home in the first round of the DFB-Pokal. The game will take place between 6th-9th August, one week before the Bundesliga gets underway. An exact timing for the tie was not yet confirmed by the DFB. The clubs lower down the pyramid normally have the right of a home game.
FC head coach, Steffen Baumgart said: “That will be tough. Everyone who has played in Jena before will know that. They are a difficult opponent, but it is the cup – it is about getting through to the next round.”
