Some minutes after midnight local time, the German regulatory authority BNETZA (similar to the OFCOM in the UK) published an official statement concerning the assignation of special callsigns to the participants of the competition.

According to that statement, the call sign block Y2A to Y9Z can be used by the contesters. There will be a lottery which team gets what callsign before the contest starts.

The Y2 block was formerly used by communist East Germany, the late “German Democratic Repbublic” which perished in 1990. For more than 28 years, these old call signs have never been issued again until now.
