Before the European soccer professionals of Borussia Dortmund meet Portuguese club Benfica at Heinz Field, they will meet residents of the Pittsburgh area in a special program at the Carnegie Science Center.

Members of the German soccer team — whose club colors of black and yellow fit right in with the Steel City — will interact with science center visitors July 23 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at the Highmark SportsWorks building.

Players will participate in a clinic showing visitors the physics and science behind soccer, and will also be available for photos and autographs.

Borussia Dortmund were champions of the Bundesliga, the German pro soccer league, in 2011 and 2012, UEFA Champions League finalists in 2013, and German Cup finalists in 2014, ‘15 and ‘16.

Six players from the team participated in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Borussia Dortmund will take on S.L. Benfica July 25 as part of the International Champions Cup at Heinz Field.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
