For the third time, Borussia Dortmund invited fans to "Dortmund sings Christmas carols" last December. Some 68,357 spectators took the club up on the invitation and set a new record for the audience.
Every year, a large part of the proceeds of the Christmas singalong is given to good causes in Dortmund. Thanks to the large number of spectators and the support of partners and sponsors, the BVB Foundation "leuchte auf" is able to donate a total of €100.000 to social organisations in Dortmund. The following charities will each receive €25,000:
- Gast-Haus Ökumenische Wohnungslosen-Initiative e. V.
- Fan-Projekt Dortmund e.V.
- Lensing Media Hilfswerk gGmbH
- SOS-Kinderdorf Dortmund
