The Stadion An der Alten Försterei swapped the traditional football atmosphere for our festive Christmas carols, which ran for the 17th year in a row on Monday.
More than 28,500 spectators arrived in Köpenick for the special event and celebrated the start of the festive season with candles and a range of carols.
Christian Arbeit opened the event and conducted proceedings throughout, aptly supported by the Emmy-Nöther-Gymnasium choir from the local area. After a thunderous 'Eisern Union' introduction to the event, the crowd mixed between traditional Christmas songs and some favourite 1. FC Union Berlin chants.
1. FC Union Berlin and the fan club Alt-Unioner would like to thank all club and stadium employees, volunteers and our official partners DKB and M1 Med Beauty Berlin. Many thanks also to Union sponsors and official sponsors of Weihnachtssingen: Lotto Berlin, ZÜBLIN, Mercedes Benz Nutzfahrzeug-Zentrum Berlin, WG SYSTEMS and 4initia.
The club wishes all fans, your friends and family, the best of wishes for Christmas.
