CUP HANDOVER FOR THE DFB CUP FINAL IN BERLIN
I have the honor to hand over the Cup on the occasion of the 74th DFB Cup Final on May 27th between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund in front of about 80,000 spectators in the Berlin Olympic Stadium. And today I can already test-lift the trophy at the traditional "Cup Handover" in the ceremony hall of the Berlin City Hall which took place in a respectful atmosphere and was imbued with mutual respect and all-round anticipation.
photo 1: Almost 6 kilos weighs the golden trophy and it is highly coveted by both teams. The next 3 weeks the teams will use for the perfect preparation and I will have to strengthen my arms with numerous push ups ;-)
photo 2: The photographer Soeren Stache captures this spontaneous moment with the great and passionate football heroes fortunately also for me ...
photo 3: ... because my selfie with Hans-Joachim Watzke, Nuri Sahin, Alexander Meier and Freddie Bobic unfortunately turns out a bit shaky
