Werder will enter the race for the German DFB Cup on Sunday 19 August 2012 at 4 p.m.
The German Football Federation on Tuesday set the schedule for the first round of the German DFB Cup, which has Werder Bremen playing their first competitive match of the 2012-13 season on a Sunday. The cup match against the third division side Preußen Münster will kick off on 19 August 2012 at 4 p.m. at Preußen Stadium.

In past years, only two or three of the 32 first round matches have taken place on Sunday at 4 p.m. This year there are five. While Werder are playing, Bundesliga sides Schalke and Eintracht Frankfurt face off in the first round. Werder last opened their tournament on a Sunday in 2009-10 when Thomas Schaaf's team beat Union Berlin 5-0 and eventually reached the final.

The second round will be played on 30-31 October 2012 with the Round of 16 to follow on 18-19 December 2012. The quarter-finals are planned for 26-27 February 2013 with the semi-finals scheduled for 16-17 April 2013. The final will be played on 1 June 2013 in Berlin.
