Hamburg`s O2 World Arena could be the witness of new Bundesliga`s record next February, when Borussia Dusseldorf will host Fulda Maberzell in the remake of 2013/14 national league final. Organizers of this event are hoping that these two clubs will attract over 4,500 people, which is the highest attendance in Bundesliga since 2007 clash between Dusseldorf`s side and TTC Frickenhausen.

Defending champion Borussia usually plays his game at ARAG Centre Court in Dusseldorf, but this time Timo BOLL & Company will compete in the place where Hamburg Freezers (Ice Hockey) and HSV Hamburg (handball) host their opponents. Battle with Fulda will be held on February 27th (20h00 CET), gathering five actual or former German national team members: Timo BOLL, Patrick FRANZISKA (Borussia), Patrick BAUM, Christian SUSS and Ruwen FILUS. BAUM and SUSS reached several major trophies playing in Borussia`s line-up alongside BOLL, including three Men`s European Champions League titles in a row.

Alexander Otto Sport Foundation prepares one more unique event in the same package with Bundesliga game. On same day 500 children, disabled and non-disabled, will have an opportunity to meet sport stars. Actually, it was the main reason why Borussia is invited to play in Hamburg: to inspire youth to enjoy in table tennis.
