1. FC Union Berlin and REWE Group have combined to produce a traditional sticker album, which will be available in more than 90 REWE stores from Monday.
Last season, Union marked a momentum achievement with promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time in the club's history. Those pictures from the play-off win over VfB Stuttgart were beamed to a global audience from here in Köpenick. We won't forget those memories in a hurry — and now you'll be able to collect them in an album.
"Of course, we were also delighted about the success of 1. FC Union Berlin and so it was very important to us to create a lasting memory for the fans together with the club," said Stefan Hörning, the CEO of REWE Ost.
"Die Zeit ist nun gekommen — and also for a sticker album," added Thomas Stäpke, Director of Finance and Sales at 1. FC Union Berlin. "To document our promotion season, our promotion heroes and our first steps in the Bundesliga in this way will be great fun for everyone."
The 90 REWE stores in Berlin will have 35,000 albums and more than eight million stickers from this Monday, Feb 17. The album is available at the participating stores for 2.50 EUR, with the stickers included free of charge. For every 10EUR spent in REWE stores, you will receive a pack of five stickers at the cashier. A list of participating stores near you can be found here. (Note: Limited to Berlin)
On Saturday, Feb 15, when Bayer Leverkusen visit the Stadion An der Alten Försterei, there will be a REWE stall behind the Gegengerade where stickers can be won.
Autograph sessions will be announced soon on the club's official website.
