  • First leg in Cologne without fans in the Rhein-Energie-Stadion

1. FC Köln fans demand: The whole week in red and white!

On Whit Monday (May 24th) the Cologne fan association Südkurve eV appealed to all supporters of 1. FC Cologne. It says: “After the team saved themselves in the relegation on the last day of the game, it is now finally time to bundle all forces in order to give everything together again for 180 minutes!”

The fans are critical of the relegation model – but of course they still want to keep their fingers crossed for their club. You write: “From our point of view there are sufficient reasons to be critical of the relegation games that were introduced years ago. But none of us can stand idly by when it’s about the sausage for a week! “

On the fourth Bundesliga matchday against Eintracht Frankfurt (October 18, 2020), fans were allowed to visit the Rhein-Energie-Stadion for the last time.

On Monday evening it was announced that the first leg in the Rhein-Energie-Stadion will definitely take place without fans. The demand for all FC supporters is now: “We therefore call on all FC fans to soak the city in red and white!” The FC colors should dominate throughout Cologne throughout the week – and also visible to everyone be.

The call: “From today, unpack everything to show your solidarity with the team and the club! Until Saturday after the final whistle, wear the red or white jersey or clothes related to FC everywhere to add a final symbol to the team: in the office, in the home office, on the bus and train, when shopping, jogging and cycling, in the park or on the tennis court, just anywhere! “
