Bayer's new entertainment medium not only works, it also delights and offers something new in German professional football: a journey through the first Bundesliga champion city, which is younger than the club.

bislang were the followers of Bayer Leverkusen They are known for being a little less imaginative in their stadium choreographies than fans of other clubs. The quality of the spectacle of the curve in the football stadium followed the well-known pattern: only second place was achieved. That was until last week's cup match against Düsseldorf, when an elaborately illuminated Bayer cross rose to the stadium roof, facing a sea of ​​red and black.

The hit song “Hell in der Nacht” by singer Dirk Maverick was heard, paying homage to the shining cross, the symbol of the city, which was first hung in 1933 between two chimneys above the chemical factory: “You decorate the Mingm Verein shirt. And when I'm fat, you'll be with me (…). Because you are what gives something to Minger City. “You are home and you are a piece of happiness.” Maverick at least remotely resembles the cult singers from the neighboring city of Cologne, whose songs with their carnival sentimentality make you cry.
