Thousands sing Christmas carols at stadium in Germany

STORY: The event, which premiered in 2015, is seen as an “emotional highlight” for the fans of 1.FC Koeln and their families, according to the club which is currently placed 13th out of 18 in the Bundesliga table.

Cologne's ‘Loss mer Weihnachtsleeder singe’ was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to global health crisis.

“It’s beautiful. The joyful anticipation was so much bigger this time than in past years because we were missing something. It’s simply a part of Christmas and has this special feel to it,” said Nadine Spierling.
