Joshua Kimmish summed up Friday night from his point of view. – It was really fun on the field. There is no need to say more about the sporting part of the evening, even if Eintracht’s views on this matter would have been different.
But what remains in the memory of the opening match, apart from showing the strength of Bayern Munich, are the two spectators who were far from what was going on in the 90 minutes on the field. Starring: Eintracht Frankfurt fans.
Before the match, Caroline Nemeczek, leader of the Glass Berlinspiel band, was scheduled to sing the German anthem. Nemchik, though she bravely raised her voice, was hardly heard. The reason: The fans in Frankfurt were whistling so loudly that you could hardly hear the anthem in places. Apparently, it was a protest against the German Football League (DFL) and the opening ceremony, which Eintracht supporters found very commercial.
After the first half, in which Bayern had already scored five goals, another scandal ensued. A Frankfurt fan has infiltrated the Bayern Munich fan strip, apparently wanting to recover a stolen flag. As he ran with her back across the field to his private sector, the security forces tried to arrest him.
About a dozen Eintracht supporters climbed the fence to prevent the flight attendants from detaining their colleague. Only after the fight did the fans of the team retreat to their stands. These were absurd scenes revealing Frankfurt’s concept of security.
None of this could be seen on TV, although the league opening was a huge hit with viewing and more success than the Super Cup and German Cup. And on Friday evening, the live broadcast on “Saturday 1” was watched by an average of 5.6 million viewers, which, according to the broadcaster, equals a market share of 23.7%.
The station was more successful at the start of the Bundesliga than in the Super Cup. The match between the German champions, i.e. Bayern and the cup winners, was followed by an average of 3.4 million viewers (market share 15.2%).
So far, the most watched match of the season was broadcast 1/32 of the German Cup, i.e. 1,860 Munich vs Borussia Dortmund on ZDF, with an average viewership of 3.732 million (market share 16.6%).
His eyesight deteriorated day by day. First in one eye. Activities in the hall, a ball hit him in the face Michau Globusch was in the hospital. Later, the vision in the other eye faded. Nevertheless, a well-deserved youth coach and teacher can still be found in the stands of the stadium in Gdynia – he comes to the matches and his friends tell him what is happening on the field. In “X-ray”, the European Championship gold medalist for years, the Guardian talks about learning a new life and putting the head at an angle so that the number of the trolley car coming into the station can be seen.
