The German Football Association has already sold around 6,000 tickets for the women's World Cup qualifier on Saturday (4:10 p.m. / ARD) in Bielefeld against Portugal.

However, the team once again criticized the early kick-off time and the fact that the men's Bundesliga was playing at practically the same time.

As already stated by other German national players and national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, striker Svenja Huth would also like more attractive kick-off times: “Basically, of course, at prime time, the day of the week is secondary.

And we would like the kick-off times to be such that they don't necessarily collide with the men's Bundesliga."

On Saturday (3.30 p.m.) five Bundesliga games will take place almost at the same time as the DFB women.

Among other things, FC Bayern Munich receives FC Augsburg.

Arminia Bielefeld is also challenged on Saturday afternoon.

Many Bielefeld football fans will probably follow the game of their relegation-threatened Arminia at VfL Wolfsburg instead of supporting the women's national team at home.

"We hope that we were able to inspire many people with the Champions League games and attract them to the national team," said 31-year-old Huth from VfL Wolfsburg during a video call on Tuesday.

The quarter-final games of the Wolfsburg women in the premier class against Arsenal WFC and the eliminated FC Bayern Munich (against Paris Saint-Germain) took place in front of a large crowd.

In addition, the world record attendance for women by FC Barcelona against Real Madrid caused a stir with 91,553 fans.
