For the president of the fifth division soccer team 1. FC Düren, Wolfgang Spelthahn, a dream come true with the DFB Cup match against FC Bayern Munich on Thursday evening.

“At the founding event at the end of 2017, I said that I dream of being able to play a competitive game against FCB at some point in the distant future. That this is already the case is huge luck - in disaster, when you look at the pandemic, "Spelthahn told the" kicker ".

He is actually a Bayern fan himself. “I always cheer automatically when Bayern score a goal - and I'm not yet sure how that will work against Düren. I will probably have to train my reflexes a bit, ”said the FC Düren President. The fact that the Düren footballers are now allowed to play a competitive game in the Munich arena is “a gift from fate”, which would be even better if fans were allowed to be there. “If we manage to bring the good talks with Bayern to their goal, they will come to Düren for a friendly match after the renovation work on our small stadium. Then we did everything right, ”said Spelthahn. Despite all the enthusiasm, you want to give everything to win the game. “Our captain called me a few days ago, urgently asking for a conversation between the team council and me. The players then told me that they wanted to talk about the bonus in case they win in Munich. I was happy that the team is striving for this, of course, purely theoretical goal, but I am a realist: We will definitely not end up in the role of favorites, ”said the President of 1. FC Düren.
