Fans and pros celebrate in winter wonderland
Countless fans flocked to FC Bayern's winter wonderland in front of the Allianz Arena on the third Sunday in Advent. "Everything's arranged with lots of care. Lots of people are here. It's a complete success," commented Mats Hummels, who like Franck Ribéry, Kingsley Coman, Julian Green and Tom Starke dropped by. "I'm glad to be here," said Ribéry, "it's always nice to have fun with the fans."
The visit by the Bayern quintet was the highlight of an enjoyable afternoon. Hummels & Co signed countless autographs, were available for selfies, drew lots and talked about the 5-0 victory over Wolfsburg and, of course, Christmas.
The fans also enjoyed a performance by the Tölzer Knabenchor (Tölz boys' choir), mulled wine and Christmas treats. The winter wonderland also served a good cause as charities FC Bayern Hilfe eV and Bayern 3 Sternstunden ran an auction and a raffle. Thank you, Bayern fans!
