2009 LFC SUPPORTERS FRIENDSHIP VISIT TO MOENCHENGLADBACH

Fans visit to Borussia Moenchenglabach
ABOVE: Liverpool FC supporters on the Borussia Park pitch in May 2007 unveiling their specially commissioned "Friendship flag" just 20 minutes before Borussia's last home match of the 2006/07 season versus VFL Bochum. The flag was especially written in German and says "Liverpool FC und Borussia MG - eine ganz besondere freundschaft" which translates to "Liverpool FC and Borussia MG - a very special friendship".

For the 3rd consecutive year we are once again making our way to Moenchengladbach to visit our old friends from the glory days of the 70's when we played Gladbach three times in the old European cup.

This year's Friendship visit will take place from Friday 8th May to Monday 11th May 2009.
The Friendship trip will involve a free of charge stadium tour in the impressive 54000 capacity Borussia Park, guaranteed match tickets in the already completely sold out local Derby match versus FC Schalke 04, tickets for all travelling LFC supporters are absolutely guaranteed.
We will be staying in a 4 Star Hotel in the centre of Moenchengladbach.
The trip will also involve a match day party with our Borussia hosts, and a tour of the various Pubs and bars in the Moenchegladbach Old Town.
There will also be free time to visit Dusseldorf of Cologne, that lie not far from Moenchengladbach if so wished..
All travelling LFC supporters must book their own flight to Germany, flights to Cologne (45 miles from Moenchengladbach) or Dusseldorf (20 miles from Moenchengladbach) are the easiest and most convenient destinations to reach Moenchengladbach. Many cheap flights are available via Ryan Air from Manchester to Dusseldorf - approx. £30.00 to £70.00 return. Also cheap flights from other destinations.

My good friend Thomas “Tower” Weinmann, Gladbach fan liason officer, has reserved a number of tickets for us to watch this match, match tickets cost only approximately 30 Euros (approximately £28.00). Contact me to reserve your match ticket.

We will be staying in a 4 Star Hotel in Moenchengladbach, twin rooms costing 79.00 Euros per night without breakfast, (approximately £75.00, which equates to approx. £37.50 per person based on two sharing a twin room). Rooms can be booked by contacting me.

If you would like to join me and my fellow Liverpool FC supporters for a great Friendship weekend, please contact me via my E-mail address (grahamlfc@aol.com) for further details.

SEE BELOW, LAST YEARS REPORT:-

LIVERPOOL FC & BORUSSIA MG - EINE GANZ BESONDERE FREUNDSCHAFT
LIVERPOOL FC & BORUSSIA MG - A VERY SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP

LAST YEARS REPORT:-

Once again, for the 2nd consecutive year the LFC supporters Friendship visit to see our friends from Moenchengladbach was an "outstanding success", stated LFC supporters Moenchengladbach Friendship trip organiser Graham Agg. There has been a very special friendship between the two clubs supporters since Borussia and Liverpool met in Borussia‘s glory days of the 70‘s. Liverpool played Borussia Moenchengladbach in the 1973 UEFA cup final triumphing 3-2 on aggregate and they also met in the 1977 European cup final in the eternal city of Rome, Liverpool again winning their first European cup 3-1. They were also to meet the following year in the 1978 European cup semi-final, again the Reds winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Since then there has been a continuous special friendship between the two sets of supporters.

Every year since 1992, the Borussia supporters have visited Anfield during the German Bundesliga winter break to support the Reds and it should also NEVER be forgotten that in 1991 a delegation of Borussia MG supporters flew to Liverpool to present the Hillsborough Families with a cheque for 21000 Deutsch Marks (approximately £8000) in the aftermath of the disaster.

The 2008 LFC supporters Friendship visit this year, fortunately coincided with a massive Borussia promotion party in the City Centre of Moenchengladbach after Borussia‘s immediate promotion back to the top flight of German football after the previous seasons relegation. An estimated crowd of 95000 people crammed into the centre of Moenchengladbach to welcome the promoted Borussia team, amongst them 50 Liverpool supporters who went to Gladbach on their annual Friendship visit.

The friendship visited also included a stadium tour, a meeting with ex-Liverpool player Christian Ziege, now Sports Director at Borussia MG, also there was an all-day LFC/BMG Fan party and an appearance for a number of LFC supporters on the Borussia Park pitch just 20 minutes before Borussia‘s last home match of the 2007/2008 season versus SC Freiburg. Also guaranteed match tickets for Borussia‘s last home match of the 2007/2008 season versus SC Freiburg which resulted in a 2-3 home defeat for Borussia but was never the less meaningless as Borussia had already the previous Wednesday clinched promotion back to the top flight - Bundesliga 1.

Friendship trip organser Graham Agg was interviewed on the pitch and conveyed in German to the 54000 capacity attendance how proud the Liverpool supporters are of a 30 year plus friendship with the Gladbach supporters. The Liverpool supporters then unveiled a specially commissioned "Friendship flag" that they proceeded to show to the entire 4 sides of the impressive Borussia Park. The amazing Gladbach supporters responded by singing a faultless rendition of "You‘ll never walk alone" and chanting "Liverpool, Liverpool" to their Liverpool friends.
The LFC fans also handed out during the weekend, special "Friendship" badges to their Borussia Moenchengladbach counterparts with the words "two clubs, one family" inscribed on them.

Before leaving the pitch the Borussia Moenchengladbach President Rolf Koenigs and Vice-President Siegfried Soellner also came down pitch level to greet the Liverpool FC supporters - a truly magnificent gesture.

The 2008 Friendship visit was also fully endorsed by Liverpool Football Club who presented the supporters before departure with a signed photograph of Liverpool captain and esteemed England international footballer Steven Gerrard to present to the official Borussia Moenchengladbach supporters club.

Graham Agg also said he wished to thank all the Borussia supporters and the citizens of the City of Moenchengladbach for their friendliness and hospitality during their stay, and congratulate Borussia‘s on their promotion to the German Bundesliga top flight. Particular thanks go to Borussia MG fan liaision officer Thomas "Tower" Weinmann and Thomas "Jonny" Polcher and from the Borussia MG Fan-Projekt, and also Liverpool supporters Pat Link and Gary Johnston, who also helped to organise the Friendship weekend, and Liverpool FC fanatics Tom Kunze and Ray Latham .

Agg also stated that he would "like to thank all Liverpool supporters in Gladbach for being superb ambassadors for Liverpool Football Club and the City of Liverpool and that Liverpool FC and Borussia MG supporters share a friendship that is very seldom seen in world football".
