Frankfurt madness

Eintracht heroes celebrate with trophies and fans

The Eintracht Frankfurt players celebrate with the trophy and fans and the Eintracht anthem. The party went deep into the night. The festivities in Frankfurt continue in the afternoon.

Eintracht Frankfurt wins Europa League. With the triumph in Seville ended a 42-year international dry period for the traditional club. In addition to the trophy, the first participation in the premier class is celebrated. Returning home will be an unforgettable experience.

ONEWhen captain Sebastian Rode appeared on the balcony of Frankfurt City Hall at 9.35pm and next to him, goalkeeper Kevin Trapp lifted the silver-colored Euro pool, Römerberg turned into a madhouse with around 8,000 cheering and dancing Eintracht fans. “Here’s the thing, now let’s keep partying,” Rode says in a hoarse voice.

One day after the “Fiesta of Sevilla” with the final triumph of 5: 4 on penalties against Glasgow Rangers, the Euro-heroes of Eintracht Frankfurt were spoiled with a mega-party of an unprecedented dimension. There was a state of emergency in the Main metropolis – and that despite the storm that blew up early in the evening. A total of 100,000 supporters were expected in the city center.

With the silver pot in their luggage, the Eintracht entourage landed on time at the airport in the Main metropolis on Thursday. The procession drove to Römer, ten kilometers away, but the trip was delayed because the convertible was repeatedly stopped by enthusiastic supporters. Even before arrival, pouring rain set in, accompanied by thunder and lightning. However, it did not put a damper on the mood. Fans chanted all the louder Eintracht anthems like “We are all Frankfurt boys” or “Here reigns the SBU”.

The supporters of the Bundesliga club with the address “In the heart of Europe” were not just soaked. They also had to be patient after the team arrived until Trapp, the penalty killer, or Rafael Borré, who shot the last ball in from the spot, appeared on the balcony. At a ceremony in the Kaisersaal of the town hall, the city honored Eintracht’s magnificent success with a post in the Golden Book. “What a triumph, what a team. Our grandchildren will still remember this victory,” said Mayor Peter Feldmann (SPD).

Winning a European title for the first time in 42 years not only makes Frankfurt more attractive, but also gives German football more prestige and gives the traditional club, which now has 100,000 members, a lot of push. Unthinkable when Eintracht, who came into the Champions League by winning the Europa Cup, also caused sensation in the Super Cup on 10 August. Then the opponent in Helsinki is Liverpool FC or Real Madrid.

Not only did the thousands of fans pay tribute to the Hessian star footballer after the sensational coup, but also politicians. “We have seen true masters,” said Interior Minister Nancy Faeser. The historic triumph was a great success for the whole of German sport, said the Hessian SPD state chairman.

The Hessian Prime Minister Volker Bouffier was also thrilled: “Eintracht Frankfurt is a real galleon figure. We are very proud of this achievement, “said the CDU politician. The green federal president, Omid Nouripour, was blown over. “Do not ask if it happened. I do not know. But I will think about it with a laugh for the next 42 years,” tweeted the chairman of the Eintracht fan club Bundesadler in the Bundestag.

The football professionals had celebrated the adventure success to a large extent until 06.00 in a club in Seville. “It was very cheerful,” CEO Axel Hellmann reported to Hessischer Rundfunk during the drive into the city center, welcoming “a fantastic community with great solidarity”. Eintracht coach Oliver Glasner would continue to celebrate after the big win: “We’ll see how it goes tonight.”

After the final whistle on Thursday night, the big party also started for the Eintracht supporters, who had gone crazy in the pubs and streets of the Hessian state capital. The cheers, the songs and the constant spout from the car horns did not end until dawn. Around 60,000 fans alone watched the games of the century for the Hessians at a public display at Frankfurt Stadium.
