The lawn in Ludwigspark has been badly affected by heavy rain. A decision on the cancellation of the cup game between 1. FC Saarbrücken and FC Bayern will not be made until Wednesday.
The decision to cancel Bayern Munich’s DFB Cup game against third division club 1. FC Saarbrücken on Wednesday will not be made until the day of the match. A spokesman for the host club announced this in response to a dpa request.
During an inspection of the pitch in the Ludwigsparkstadion this Tuesday at 2 p.m., representatives of the city as the owner of the stadium, the club and experts from the Saarland Football Association want to get an idea of the condition of the field. “We are currently working on the site and it is being aerated,” said Thomas Blug, the media officer for the city of Saarbrücken.
After heavy rain, the Saarland championship game against SG Dynamo Dresden last Sunday had to be canceled during half-time. Since it didn’t rain heavily on Tuesday night and no rain has been forecast on Wednesday, there is hope that the cup game in the second main round could kick off at 8:45 p.m. The game is sold out with 16,000 spectators.
For the record cup winner from Munich, a cancellation would not be unproblematic given the busy program in the Bundesliga and the Champions League. It is not possible to relocate the match to another stadium at short notice.
