The friendly tournament planned for Saturday, 19th November at the Heinz-Dettmer-Stadion in Lohne has unfortunately been called off due to security concerns.

The police office for Cloppenburg/Vechta stated: “In co-operation with authorities in Düsseldorf, Bielefeld and Bremen, information was obtained indicating a large number of violent persons were expected to travel to the football tournament on Saturday in Lohne. Therefore, the decision was taken, in co-operation with the organisers and participating clubs, to cancel the tournament.”

Three friendlies of 45 minutes each, pitting “everyone against everyone” were originally planned. Along with Werder, 2. Bundesliga sides Arminia Bielefeld and Fortuna Düsseldorf were expected to take part. The tournament has unfortunately been cancelled without postponement.
