  • Dario Scuderi on his long way back

The 18-year-old prospect was once considered one of the most promising prospects in the clubs youth teams before a horrible injury set him back. He was close to getting a call up to the first team just like Pulisic or Passlack did before him, but sadly he tore just about every ligament in his knee during a Youth-League game against Warsaw at the beginning of the season. Now he is on his way back, it will be quite a while before we see him back on the pitch but it's nice to see him working on his recovery. We wish him all the best.

  • Dortmund start a secondary ticket market platform

The black market for Bundesliga tickets has been an issue for years. Even though the Signal-Iduna-Park and its 81.360 capacity should be enough to grant everybody the chance to get to see a game but it is still difficult to get hold of a ticket for one of the games.

One of the "problems" is that Dortmund have 55.000 season-ticket holders, the highest number in the Bundesliga, plus the tickets that are reserved for the guest team. The demand to see Dortmund and the legendary "Yellow Wall" is so high that an increasing number of tickets have been sold on the black market.

Now Dortmund has taken action against it, they created a resell-market for tickets. Most of the tickets on the black market are tickets from season-ticket holders that can not attend a specific game. The newly created platform allows ticket-holders to put them up for resale on the BVB-site. This means that the prices won't be doubled or tripled, they will be sold at face value.

Furthermore, the sellers will have the option to relinquish their right to the money and donate it to the BVB-foundation "Leuchte Auf", if they choose to do so, Dortmund will double the amount that is donated.
