Friendlies against Mechelen & Rangers confirmed

Hertha BSC will not play any more football this calendar year, after ending 2023 with an unbeaten run and booking their place in the DFB-Pokal quarter finals. While the team can look forward to recharging their batteries over the winter break, The Old Lady's plans for preparations ahead of the second half of the season have now been confirmed. 

The return to training and a friendly against Aue 

The team will return to training on 3rd January and will then contest a friendly against FC Erzgebirge Aue at the Stadion auf dem Wurfplatz/Amateurstadion just three days later (06.01.24, 14:00 CET).
