Traning to begin on 5th July | Training camp from 25th July to 1st August in Austria | Three friendlies to be played

After finishing second in the Bundesliga, the Leipzig players are now enjoying their hard-earned summer break. With the focus now turning to next season - the club's sixth in the top flight - the summer schedule is coming together.

All dates are subject to change.

The team will begin pre-season on 5th July with new coach Jesse Marsch at Cottaweg.

Three weeks after the first training session, the Bulls will travel to Saalfelden in Austria for an eight-day training camp on 25th July.

Currently, three friendlies are planned for the summer. The first two opponents have already been announced: AZ Alkmaar (third in the Eredivisie) on 17th July and Montpellier HSC (eighth in Ligue 1) on 23rd July at Cottaweg.

The first competitive game of the season will be between 6th-9th August in the first round of the DFB-Pokal. The first matchday of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season will take place between 13th-15th August. 

Please note:
