Does anybody know the date of the start of the 2008-09 season for the BL (and BL 2 - just in case FCN get relegated). I need to book some holidays and want to tie in a couple of weeks in Franken with the start of the season. :)

I'm not sure if the dates are already out. But if anyone knows it is DFL/bundesliga.de.

I also don't know when it starts and I had a look on a few pages, but there is nothing to be found. Sorry Jon. I think it'll start on either the first August weekend (1st-3rd August) or the second one, if that helps. ;)

Thanks guys...

I'm booking a couple of weeks holiday in Franken if I can find a house or apartment big enough for the whole family - approx 8 of us. I obviously need to make sure I'm there when the season is on!!

Ups.. that happens when you enter the right search words for google. The dates for the coming season are already fixed. And they already were when you started that thread. Sorry Jon...

The 2nd Bundesliga starts on the weekend of the 15th to 18th of August. The 1st division as well, but I'm sure you're more interested in the 2nd Bundesliga. :D :wallang:

So my guess was completely wrong. ;)

Ok... Holiday accommodation booked...

A week in Monschau and the up to 11 days in Franken spanning the first two weekends of the season.

Just one more question... Will the format for the game days be the same next season? BL Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 2BL Friday, Sunday, Monday? Or is it right (i've heard a rumour) that BL will also be having Monday games next season?

I need to book Eurotunnel for getting back to England but I may have to wait and see which league Der Club are in before I do!!!

I think so, Jon. I haven't heard anything about a BL monday game so far. I only know that we might see 3 Sunday games in case of UEFA games in the week before, so that every team has at least 2 off days.
