Hertha’s summer schedule

After a 2020/21 season that has been challenging and energy-sapping in equal measure, the Hertha players are currently taking a well-earned summer break to recharge their batteries. However, the new campaign is just around the corner and planning is in full swing - with the first important dates now confirmed. On 28th and 29th June, the team will begin their pre-season with internal performance tests. On Wednesday (30/06/21, 15:00 CEST), head coach Pál Dárdai will lead his troop in the first training session of the new season at the Hanns-Braun-Platz. Whether spectators will be allowed at the session is currently still being clarified and an announcement will be made as soon as a decision becomes clear.

Two training camps and four friendlies
