The pre-season is getting intensive already

Squad to travel to Bramberg am Wildkogel on Saturday for training camp

Our pre-season is to get more intensive from Saturday as we begin a training camp. Our team are heading for the third time to the Oberpinzgau region to set up camp in Bramberg am Wildkogel. Over eight days, Jesse Marsch's team will prepare for the challenges to come in the new football season in the Austrian Bundesliga, ÖFB Cup and European competition.

traveling to the Wildkogel Resort with 29 players

The first training session of the camp will take place on Saturday afternoon on the TSU Bramberg sports pitch. From the team hotel of the Wildkogel Resort, it is just a few minutes on the mountain bike to the training pitch, with its superb conditions.

Coach Jesse Marsch is clear that these eight days are a very important part of the pre-season, saying:

We have the opportunity in Bramberg to prepare intensively for the new season without any distractions. So far our squad has barely changed compared to last season. That is a good start, as a lot of our procedures have already been learned and the players know what to expect. There will also be a few talents there at the training camp to learn with us and prove themselves.
