German Clubs in 2023/24 European Campaign


In the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League, German football enthusiasts are in for an exciting journey as four prominent clubs, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and the debutants Union Berlin, vie for continental glory. Simultaneously, Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg represent the Bundesliga in the Europa League, while Eintracht Frankfurt carries the nation’s hopes in the Conference League.

The quartet of Bayern, Dortmund, Leipzig, and Union Berlin has the honor of flying Germany’s flag on the grand stage of the Champions League. Union Berlin, making their debut, has chosen the iconic Olympiastadion as their home ground for European encounters, deviating from the Stadion an der Alten Försterei.

Adding a unique dimension to the European landscape, three Champions League fixtures will be held at Hamburg’s Volksparkstadion. This deviation stems from the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk, who are compelled to host their home games in Hamburg due to the ongoing war in their homeland.
