Bundesliga Home Challenge

The online competition was made by the DFL to try and replace some of the football action we’re missing out on during the Corona crisis. The teams are made up of two players, both of whom will play one game against their opponents on FIFA 20 using the “85-mode” on Playstation 4. Each match will last around 25 minutes. There’s no official table for the competition as it has no official sporting worth to any of the clubs involved -it’s purely a bit of fun during times like these where we truly need it.
