Bundesliga climber Union Berlin has become creative in the crisis surrounding the corona virus. The Köpenicker, who should have played against record champions FC Bayern Munich in front of the sold-out house at the Alte Försterei on Saturday, braved themselves with an extraordinary campaign against the cancellation of perhaps the most important game in the club’s history. Instead of the stadium, the club welcomed its fans to its own online platform “AFTV” and showed the self-produced promotional film “The time has come”. They also took care of the dry throats of the trailers. If only virtually.
Kettle goulash, pea soup and cyclists for 2.50 euros
It could not be that there is no football with the “Union family”, it said on Saturday evening at 6.30 p.m. on the Union website: “An iron week must not end like this!” And because football is not football without beer and bratwurst, a virtual food truck opened an hour before the actual kick-off. The reason for the special campaign: “Many Unioners have come forward in the last few days and asked how they can support the association with a donation. Among them was an irresistible idea: The virtual snack car!”, Said the Köpenicker. Many followers liked to use it. They also virtually bought kettle goulash, pea soup or bicycles for prices starting at 2.50 euros. They received no real consideration for their donation.
“Let’s drink that we’ll all see each other again in our living room in good health. And never forget the Eisern Union!” Wrote the Berliners. Many supporters shared photos of their purchases on the social networks and helped the capital club financially to at least compensate a little for the massive loss of income from the Bayern game.
