Berlin – In the vicinity of Viktoria 1889 Berlin, especially in the appendix, there is often talk of the “Third League adventure”. On Sunday, the promoted player will go into his first game in Germany’s third-highest division. On Wednesday afternoon, the game committee of the German Football Association (DFB) decided that Berlin’s Viktoria could receive the first opponent, Viktoria Köln, in the Jahnsportpark on Sunday at 1 p.m. and not have to go to the huge Olympic Stadium. The DFB criticized the missing floodlight system in Viktoria’s new home in Prenzlauer Berg. The Berlin Senate initially approved 2000 viewers.
The people in charge at Victoria do not speak of an “adventure” in unison. Managing director Peer Jaekel, for example, says very confidently: “We are going into this league so that we can stay there. We want to develop and establish ourselves in the third division. ”Head coach Benedetto Muzzicato also asks:“ Why is this an adventure? We are an ambitious club and want to stay in this league. “
