Frankfurt / Cologne - The DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga has confirmed the kick-off times for Matchdays 12-17 in the Bundesliga, as well as Matchdays 14-19 in Bundesliga 2, with two deviations to the usual administrative procedure.

In view of FIFA's extension allowing international players to remain with their national team squads until Wednesday 19 November, there will be no Bundesliga game played on the Friday of that week. Instead, Matchday 12 will have seven encounters on Saturday 22 and two on Sunday 23 November. Friday’s action will be a Bundesliga 2 Matchday 14 clash, with 1. FC Kaiserslautern hosting SV Darmstadt 98 at 18:30 GMT / 20:30 CET.

There will also be no Bundesliga 2 game on Monday 16 December on account of the Englische Woche the following week. Instead, three games will be played on the preceding Saturday 14 December.
