The clubs in the NOFV-Nordstaffel of the Oberliga have 28 or 29 games. Doesn’t look like the home stretch in a 19-league, but it is. Due to the corona-related interruption in autumn, when other divisions continued, the Oberliga cannot be completed as planned. Each team plays three more games, then a quotient rule is applied.

That could be exciting when it comes to promotion. Hertha 03 are currently one point ahead of Greifswalder FC. But this one is ahead with a game less in terms of the quotient (2.21 to 2.17).

Complicated? Yes! On the other hand, the following is easy: On Saturday at 2 p.m., Zehlendorfer will play against Brandenburger SC Süd 05 (Ernst-Reuter-Sportfeld), while GFC will play at Victoria Seelow. On June 12, the top teams will then meet in Greifswald.

While the soccer players are counting, everything is clear for the water polo players: Spandau 04 leads 1-0 in the final series for the German championship against Bayer Uerdingen and needs a win for the title. The first chance is on Saturday at 3 p.m. in the Schöneberg swimming pool. If Uerdingen wins, the decision will also be made in Schöneberg on Sunday (2 p.m.).

They are a long way from the decision about the championship in American football. The season has only recently started, two weeks ago there was the derby Berlin Rebels against newly promoted Berlin Adler in the German Football League, which the guests narrowly won.

Now the Rebels’ second home game is coming up: on Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Mommsen Stadium it’s against the Lions from Braunschweig, the record champions (twelve titles). The Adler play away against the Düsseldorf Panthers.

Cricket can be a time-consuming affair, sometimes lasting several days. The federal leagues are limited to the short version. This means that several games can take place over the weekend. On Saturday, the women’s team from the Berlin Cricket Academy will meet Saxon United twice in a row from twelve o’clock.

It’s the men’s turn on Sunday. At eleven o’clock the BSC Rehberge plays against the Blackcaps Düsseldorf, after that it’s Berlin Cricket Club against Düsseldorf. The venue is always the Maifeld at the Olympic Stadium. There is the bell tower, whose viewing platform offers a great view when the weather is nice – and the weather is supposed to be nice.

Trophies, trophies, trophies, there are in the stadium in the Volkspark Mariendorf (especially worth seeing: the large covered standing room grandstand) at the Berlin soccer finals for women and juniors. The final of the B juniors had to be postponed. The reason is good: 1. FC Union is in the championship semifinals against Eintracht Frankfurt (Saturday 11 a.m., Stadion An der Alten Försterei).

There are now “only” five finals in the cup. On Sunday that of the D girls (10 a.m., Hertha 03 – Union) and C girls (12 p.m., Union – FFC Berlin 2004). On Whit Monday the women will play: SV Blau-Gelb – FC Internationale III (7s women, 10 a.m.), Borussia Pankow III – Union II (from 2nd women, 12 p.m.) and Türkiyemspor – Viktoria 89 (3 p.m.), both off the regional league.
