Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Hofmann for the Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen, played at Olympiastadion in Munich on 7th of March 2004. This was the second meeting between the sides this season with Bremen having won the first match 2-1 back on matchday 6. Since then a gulf had opened up between the sides Werder were gunning for the league title meanwhile Die Löwen were languishing close to the foot of the table. An even game became extremely one-sided when Sechzig were reduced to 10 men after Roman Týce's 22nd minute dismissal, Bremen worked the man advantage with Ivan Klasnic scoring just before the break. The visitors doubled their the lead lead on in the second half thanks to a nice header from Angelos Charisteas and the game finished 2-0. Hofmann played the full match in between the sticks for the side and made 32 appearances this season as the club suffered relegation to the second tier after picking up 2 points in their last 8 games. The keeper spent 12 years in Bavaria with the side between 1998-2010 making well over 150 appearances for the squad before joining Jahn Regensburg in 2010.
