Rainer Bonhof: “We’d like to reach 10th spot”
We sat down with vice president Rainer Bonhof to discuss the upcoming match against FC Augsburg (Saturday, 27th May, 15:30 CET), Borussia’s record home attendances this season and the departing Lars Stindl, Marcus Thuram and Ramy Bensebaini.
Borussia are set to welcome FC Augsburg on Saturday for the final home game of what has been a turbulent season overall. What sort of game are you expecting?
Rainer Bonhof: Augsburg will without question do everything they can to get something at BORUSSIA-PARK because they aren’t safe just yet. There is also a lot at stake for us as we’d like to reach 10th spot. That’s something we definitely want to achieve and the same goes for the fans. One the one hand, it would mean more TV revenue but on the other, we’d be ending the season on a positive note. We’re in the position to do that after the team picked up a point in Leverkusen on Sunday night.
BORUSSIA-PARK is almost sold-out again on Saturday and we’ve had a record number of supporters at home games this season.
Bonhof: That is simply fantastic. We know that we can rely on our fans. Who would have thought that in the season after the pandemic, BORUSSIA-PARK would be sold-out almost every home game? And that we’d get such amazing support at every away game and often have even more fans than the away allocation? It’s really important to me to say thank you for your amazing and passionate support.
