This year, there was again a joint action between many Bundesliga clubs during the course of Programs for Members aged over 60. Last Sunday and Monday, a total of 120 participants met in the Ruhr area and spent two exciting days around the DFB Cup round of 16 draw in the German Football Museum in Dortmund. 20 members of Borussia Dortmund also joined the group.

To get ready for the draw Borussia Dortmund invited participants from Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt, VfL Wolfsburg, Dynamo Dresden, 1. FC Cologne, VfL Bochum and FC Schalke 04 to an exclusive tour of the most beautiful stadium in the world. Afterwards, the colourfully mixed group were able to take a look around the German Football Museum, where the draw was taking place and revel in shared memories. Then placed on the TV set, the draw, broadcast live on ARD was followed with great excitement.

At the subsequent joint dinner, the first heated discussions were held on the upcoming games, and the pros and cons of yet another cup encounter between BVB and Werder Bremen were hotly debated. The second day was all about an active and energetic lifestyle. In addition to an entertaining workshop from consultant Brinja Hoffmann with numerous tips and specific advice for everyday life, football of course was not missing from the program of events. Under the supervision of coaches from participating clubs, a Walking Football training session was held attracting the attention of prospective new customers for sessions at their clubs.
