Scheduling for the Bundesliga Season
Before the start of the season, FIFA fill in the first spaces in the calendar with the international fixtures. UEFA then add the schedule for competitions such as the Champions League and Europa League.
Only then can the DFL and DFB (for the German FA Cup) fill in the national benchmark data. Television contracts provide a further framework for the respective matchday structures (e.g. the 2. Bundesliga usually has three matches on Friday, five on Sunday and one on Monday). June 15th is incidentally the cut-off date for ruling on whether all clubs in the top two leagues have met the criteria required for the issuing of a professional license for the following season.
The fixtures are then passed on to the Zentrale Informationsstelle für Sicherheit (ZIS), which checks for any possible security issues arising from factors such as “double-headers” – where two clubs in close proximity to each other (e.g. Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04) are both scheduled to play a home match at the same time.
