The Galactics are coming: Hertha BSC to face Real Madrid

Coach Markus Babbel and the team would like to thank the fans for their fantastic support during the 2010/2011 season and celebrate the return to the Bundesliga with this match.

The visit by the “Galactics” with their star manager Jose Mourinho will surely lead to a sold out Olympiastadion, as their visit marks the first time since 2008 that an internationally reknown team visits Berlin. Back in 2008, FC Liverpool came to Berlin to play Hertha BSC.

Press comments:
Michael Preetz, CEO Sports Hertha BSC:
„We are very proud to be able to welcome Real and all their stars like Mesut Özil and Cristiano Ronaldo to Berlin. This is not just any other match – it is an absolute highlight.“

Joachim E. Thomas, CEO Olympiastadion Berlin GmbH:
„We are looking forward to this highlight at the Olympiastadion Berlin. We are anxiously awaiting the match against the Madrilenians.“

Philipp Hasenbein, CEO SPORTFIVE Germany:
„We were thrilled that Hertha was able to return to the Bundesliga and we are equally happy that we were able to get one of the best club teams in the world in Real Madrid to come to the Olympiastadion Berlin.“

The official start of ticket sales is May 13, 2011 at all ticket agencies, online at and or via telephone at the service hotline 01805 1892 00. For all Hertha BSC members and season ticket holders during the 2010/2011 season, there will be an exclusive pre sale period.
