DEintracht’s home will no longer be located in the literal “European Center”, but by mail: at the official inauguration of the new address in the urban forest not far from the Frankfurt football stadium, at lunchtime on Monday. The club’s new professional training camp will open a few weeks before the start of the upcoming Bundesliga season. The current address is “in the center of Europe” and the house number is 1.
Frankfurt City Councilman Mike Joseph has never seen so many spectators named streets, usually “just an administrative act.” A total of nearly a hundred guests attended.In addition to the Social Democratic Party politicians, there are also board speakers Axel Herman, Board member Oliver Frankenbach, Chairman of the Supervisory Board Philip Holzer, President Peter Fischer, Bundesliga record player Karl Heinz Kolbel and professionals Timothy Chandler and Eric Dum.
“This is a great day for Frankfurt Frankfurt. This step is unique and ensures that our employees are more motivated than they already have when they move into their new home in August,” Hermann said. He can’t think of a better name, and I want to thank the city for its rapid and unanimous support over the months after the approval of the 5th Local Advisory Committee (Niederrad, Oberrad, Sachsenhausen) in the winter.
The name of the address symbolizes the presence of the club and the region in Europe, as well as the pro-European views repeatedly expressed by the club through strong opinions on issues of diversity, equality and tolerance. “In recent years, we have made a strong commitment to the European concept like other clubs. This season we will also play in Europe again. This street name is very much in line with the club’s identity,” Herman said.
In 1997, the song “In the Heart of Europe” was played for the first time in the original Wald Stadium (now known as “Deutsche Bank Park”). Since then, it has developed into the club’s national anthem that is played before every home game. In the professional camps that can be moved into next month, the licensed player area and employees will be unified under one roof.
