On Tuesday August 20 at 14:00, 1. FC Union Berlin will open their Baltic Sea Cup campaign at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei against Danish club FC Nordsjaelland. The stadium gates will open an hour before kick-off and entry is free.
Supporters will be able to sit in the main stand or stand in the Waldseite terracing. There is free parking on site.
The Baltic Sea Cup is a competition run by the Danish FA with the aim of exposing young players to international opposition. Players from U19-U21 are eligible, as well as, three first-team 'older' players. Youth coach Andre Hofschneider will take charge of the side for this game, supported by Andre Vilk. Sebastian Bönig, who will lead the team in the future, is continuing to go through his coaching badges.
The top three clubs in Denmark's youth Superliga earn qualification for the tournament, with Nordsjaelland ending in third place. The first-team of Nordsjaelland were crowned Danish champions in 2012 and they remain one of the strongest clubs in the country.
On September 18, Union will travel to Halmstads BK for the second game of the tournament. There are two more games for the Köpenick club: away to Aalborg and home to Brondby.
