The COME-TOGETHER-CUP 2019 May 30th, 2019
THE BASIC IDEA MAKES IT SO SPECIAL
As a relaxed-positive sports event with a socio-politically optimistic touch, the COME TOGETHER CUP is something that many people are currently yearning for more than ever and which is unique in Germany in this form. Together, players*, visitors* and helpers* play a playful sign against exclusion and for diversity. By the way, football is not the focus of attention for all visitors*: many come simply because of the good atmosphere, the very special ambience and the programme. For many, the brightly coloured football festival is the most genuine festival for diversity ever, because all the social groups of the respective city are absolutely indispensable as an active part of the tournament. Moving pictures in the CTC film give a first insight – but in the end you just have to experience the CTC !
Since 2012, the venue for the COME TOGETHER CUP COLOGNE has been the RheinEnergieSTADION. Previously, the CTC had already taken place 17 times from 1995 to 2011 on the Jahnwiese – on the other side of the stadium. The highlight of the approximately 70,000 m2 event area are the top-maintained lawns – embedded in the Sportpark Müngersdorf, which is unique in Germany, and of course against the impressive backdrop of the north stand of the former Müngersdorfer Stadion with its historical buildings in front of it. The RheinEnergieSTADION is the venue of the 1. FC Cologne, which is always beloved, no matter in which league. The combination of this special “Kölle-Jeföhl” on the one hand and the very lively event/tournament concept on the other creates a very special CTC atmosphere year after year.
