This was explained by sports director Uwe Klein in the “Rheinische Post”.
Exactly one month after the last Bundesliga game at Union Berlin, relegated Fortuna Düsseldorf starts again. A double test awaits the remaining professionals on Monday.
It won't be really crowded on Monday at the arena in the north of Düsseldorf. Finally, a total of 16 contracts expired at the end of the season, and the club has not yet announced any external additions.
But at least some of the dates of the preparation are fixed.

The first team training will then take place on Wednesday, of course also without spectators.

Apparently the 22-year-old has little desire for games in the 2. Bundesliga and none at all for the coach Uwe Rösler. However, leaving will not be easy. Striker Bernard Tekpetey was used for Düsseldorf only nine times last season, only once over the full 90 minutes.
The fortunes have given up the training camp in Maria Alm, Austria, which has become a habit, and instead move into a training camp in the Netherlands from August 24th to 28th.
Previously, the club published in a message, there will be intensive running units on the first days. It is logical that the training units and the planned test games will take place to the exclusion of the spectators. The club once again asks the fans "for understanding the difficult situation" and announces that test matches and selected training sessions will be broadcast live on the Fortuna channels, so that the fans can at least participate in the preparation of the professionals.
"For years we have been in close contact with our fans as part of summer preparation," recalls Uwe Klein. "Unfortunately, this is not possible this year, so we ask all fans for their understanding. As soon as the circumstances permit, the Fortuna will be" hands-on "as usual," announced the new sports board.
