A statement from the club website read:
“It’s a pity of course. But we will work to ensure that at least the traveling Werder fans can watch the matches live. Nevertheless, we are pleased that there is the opportunity to play two interesting sporting games,” said Werder CEO Frank Baumann. More information about the two test matches will follow shortly.
In addition to the preparation for the second half of the season, Florian Kohfeldt’s team will also be present socially in Johannesburg: On Tuesday afternoon (08/01/19), the team will visit the ‘Amandla Safe Hub Diepsloot’ and on Thursday (10/01/19), alongside the German Ambassador will attend a reception in Pretoria.
“The German Ambassador Martin Schäfer comes from Achim and is a Werder fan and so we were all the more pleased about the invitation,” explained Managing Director and President Dr. Ing. Hubertus Hess-Grunewald, who is also looking forward to visiting the Amandla Safe Hub. “This is a very interesting and successful project which is supported by the DFL. Many children and young people in Johannesburg grow up in socially difficult conditions and poverty, drugs and crime is everywhere. The Safe Hub aims to be a safe place for the young people and try to give them a safer future through football and education. We would like to get an impression ourselves and exchange views.”
