Last weekend the format of this year’s 1. Bundesliga was still up in the air. Clubs could choose from two formats: a competition with four divisions, each containing four teams or the regular two-division format with eight teams each.

Most clubs opted for the regular format, so that means there will be a North and a South division.

The North Division will contain the following teams:

Berlin Flamingos
Bonn Capitals
Cologne Cardinals
Dohren Wild Farmers
Dortmund Wanderers
Hamburg Stealers
Solingen Alligators
Untouchables Paderborn

The following teams will play in the South Division:

Heidenheim Heideköpfe
Mainz Athletics
Mannheim Tornados
München-Haar Disciples
Regensburg Legionäre
Stuttgart Reds
Tübingen Hawks
Ulm Falcons

The regular season will be played in seven rounds. The top two finishers of each league will advance to the playoffs; nr. 1 of each league vs the nr. 2 of the other league. The best of three championship series should be wrapped up on the weekend of October 17/18.

Even though the leagues can take off, the rules established to contain the coronavirus should be followed strictly.

The schedule of the opening weekend is as follows:
