A crowd of 71,000 fans, ‘Song of carols’ held at Signal Iduna Park
Christmas carols rang instead of cheering songs at the football stadium. About 71,000 fans gathered at Signal Iduna Park, home of Borussia Dortmund, to create a spectacle.
Borussia Dortmund hosted a carol chorus event for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting with the event in 2017, the event was held consecutively in 2018 and 2019. However, in 2020 and 2021, the event was canceled to prevent the spread of Corona 19.
The name of the event is “Dortmund sings Christmas carols”. At this event, more than 71,000 fans sang carols together.
Usually, the devoted fans of Signal Iduna Park are notorious for making a lot of noise and making opponents tremble. However, this time instead of strong and aggressive soccer cheers and slogans, calm carols flowed through the stadium.
According to the club’s report, the event, attended by many musicians and artists, was known to be visited mainly by family-level fans.
The event was held in two acts, the first half and the second half of 45 minutes each, just like a soccer game. From famous Christmas carols like ‘Let It Snow’ to Borussia Dortmund’s anthem, a variety of songs make up the set list for the carol choral concert. 안전놀이터

The club plans to donate a significant portion of the proceeds from the event to the local community. The purpose is to return the income earned from citizens and fans back to the city and society.
