Defending champions 1. FC Saarbrücken and the German champions Borussia Düsseldorf are contesting the final of the table tennis Champions League for the fourth time in a row. At the final tournament in Saarbrücken, the FCS won the German duel with TTC Neu-Ulm 3-2.

Düsseldorf’s Timo Boll, Dang Qiu and Anton Källberg had previously won 3-1 against TTC Wiener Neustadt in the first semi-final. The final in the Saarlandhalle begins on Easter Monday at 2 p.m. (

The Düsseldorf team has already won the most important European club title twelve times: six times as European Cup champions, six times in the Champions League – including in the final against Saarbrücken in 2021 and 2022. Last year the Saarland team won the title for the first time.

Against Neu-Ulm, the Slovenian Darko Jorgic won the decisive fifth singles for Saarbrücken in 3-0 sets against Dimitrij Ovtcharov. The former world number one had previously also lost against his German national team colleague Patrick Franziska.

For the Neu-Ulm team it was the last game as a professional table tennis club: the ambitious project of media entrepreneur Florian Ebner had already withdrawn from the Bundesliga last year. And participation in the Champions League again is no longer possible next season without being part of the national league.
