Video: For the first time since 2019, over 40,000 German football fans gather to sing Christmas carols

Fans of German soccer club 1.FC Köln cannot be too excited about their team’s performance on the pitch as the club is currently ranked 13th out of 18 teams in the Bundesliga. However, fans have something else to cheer about: For the first time since COVID-19 restrictions hit the country, they have been allowed to gather in person and sing Christmas carols at an annual event called “Loss mer Weihnachtsleeder singe”. which loosely translated means “Let’s sing Christmas carols”.

And boy did the fans turn out. An estimated 44,000 fans packed Cologne’s sports stadium on Friday night to huddle together in the cold and sing Christmas carols.

Corresponding Reuters, the event started in 2015 and was considered the “emotional highlight” of the year by the club’s fans. However, it has been canceled for each of the past two years due to COVID-19 restrictions in the country.

“It is wonderful. The anticipation was so much greater this time than in previous years because we were missing something. It’s just part of Christmas and has that special flair,” participant Nadine Spierling told Reuters.

This year, Germans don’t appear to be letting fears of COVID-19 dampen their spirits, as attendance at the event seems to have risen to the same levels estimated before the pandemic.
