Following the last home game before the winter break, fans of TSV 1860 Munich will hold a Christmas market at Candidplatz.
Munich - First, however, TSV 1860 Munich will play at the Grünwalder Stadium for the last time this year on Saturday, 09 December. At 14 p.m., the third-division match against Rot-Weiß Essen will kick off. It will not be an easy game for the Lions against the team from the top third of the table.
Most recently, the Munich team lost three times in a row. The embarrassment in the Toto Cup against Pipinsried was followed by a 0-1 home defeat in the S-Bahn derby against SpVgg Unterhaching. On Sunday, 1860 lost 0-3 at Borussia Dortmund's reserves. In the table of the 3rd league, the lions have slipped to 15th place in the table. The relegation ranks are slowly getting dangerously close.
Christmas market of the 1860 followers: 15 stalls including raffle and merchandise
For the coming Saturday, some fans of the Blues have organized a Christmas market, which opens after the game against RW Essen from 16 p.m. at Candidplatz. According to the Facebook page "White-Blue Blog", there will be 15 booths including a raffle, fan merchandise as well as food and drink. Among other things, there will be the "booths already known from the Löwentreff" and there will be "departments of the association, since Brunnenmiller, Sechzig im Sechzger & echte Münchner, will be represented with their own stands." The raffle is intended as a "rounding off for the evening".
On the Facebook page, it was also announced that part of the proceeds from the sale of food and drink would be donated to social initiatives. The exact initiatives involved were not communicated.
Fans regularly organize activities
It is not the first Christmas market organized by the fans of the Munich Lions. Even before the Corona pandemic and also last year, there was a Christmas market on the Grünspitz, where mulled wine and crêpes were sold. In addition, last year there was also the sale of a chocolate Advent calendar in the sixty design. If you want to know more about the campaigns, you can find out more on the Facebook page of the "White-Blue Blog". There is also information about the "Löwen-Treff", where the fans meet before the games (usually at Candidplatz).
So it is to be hoped that at least the Christmas market will provide contemplative moments for the Löwen fans, after it is currently seething again in the management floor far away from football. Disagreements that also divide the fans of TSV 1860 Munich. (sg)
