The DFB-Pokal is entering the home straight. Here you can find out when the semi-finals will be held.
The DFB-Pokal is in the final spurt of the season. Two more rounds have to be played in the prestigious competition, then the new cup winner is certain
Numerous big names stumbled on this year's cup season early. The sensational Cup of record champion and defending champion FC Bayern Munich , who had to give up on penalties in the second round of second division Holstein Kiel, will be remembered forever.
Bayer Leverkusen also embarrassed itself to the bone in the round of 16 at regional division Rot-Weiss Essen. If in normal years the fans in the stadiums had fallen into ecstasy in the face of such results, the cup season unfortunately also stood as a symbol for the corona crisis. At least so far there have been no spectators, in the first round many underdogs exchanged home rights due to the high requirements for the hygiene concept.

The current cup season offers some special dates. The scheduling of the two semi-finals is particularly unusual. Not only do these take place on a weekend, but the first semi-final falls on the May 1st . The second semi-final will take place one day later on May 2nd .
Due to the tight schedule in times of the corona pandemic, the schedules had to be revised before the season. At that time, the associations and the security authorities assumed that spectators would again be in the stadiums on May 1, 2021. In order to relieve the security forces on this special weekend, it was decided not to allow regular operations in the leagues on these days. This would have tied a significantly higher number of police officers.
Cup showdown as the final duel of the coach volcanoes
The DVV Cup final between the volleyball team of SC Potsdam and SSC Palmberg Schwerin promises heated emotions.

Instead, the cup semi-finals were put on a weekend. In addition, due to the many English weeks, there were hardly any alternatives to play the games during the week.
The termination of the finals is also due to the pandemic. Since after the end of the Bundesliga season (May 22nd) there is hardly any time left until the (planned) European Championship to accommodate both the Cup and Champions League finals, the Cup final became on the May 13th and thus in the middle of the final stages of the leagues laid. May 13th is a Thursday, but with Ascension Day it is also a public holiday.
The idea: Since it is a public holiday, the fans can also watch the final in the stadium during the week. In the meantime, however, it looks like after 2020 the final in 2021 will also be a ghost game.
