German Bundesliga side VfL Bochum will be the Town’s final opposition in a double-header of pre-season matches – and our last before the Premier League campaign kicks off at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Rob Edwards and his squad will travel to the Ruhr Valley to take on the team that finished 14th in the German top-flight last season in two matches to be played on Saturday 5th August.

The first will kick-off at 1.30pm, with the second following at 4.15pm local time at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.

Supporters will be able to attend both matches at the 26,000-capacity stadium, with seating and terracing available through Bochum's eticketing website. Town fans will be able sit in block E2 (15 EUR adults, £10 EUR children 0-14 and disabled) or stand in block E1 (8 EUR adults, 5 EUR children, disabled and students).

Access for wheelchair users, including an accompanying helper, is available for 8 EUR. Please email to book a place.

We apologise for the delay in announcing these fixtures while waiting for clearance from the German authorities.
