“An amazing season” – Salzburg celebrates the championship title with 15,000 fans

A championship party in an almost full hut – in recent years this has not been possible in the Bundesliga due to the pandemic. On Saturday, series champion Red Bull Salzburg celebrated the double in the Red Bull Arena with 15,800 spectators. At 7:14 p.m., “Bullen” captain Andreas Ulmer once again lifted the 11.5-kilogram Bundesliga champion’s plate, which had a diameter of 65 centimeters, to the obligatory “Queen” anthem “We Are The Champions”.

The 36-year-old received the showpiece from Bundesliga board member Christian Ebenbauer, who had previously distributed the championship medals to Salzburg. Laps of honor were then taken through the stadium with the ÖFB Cup and championship plate. The fact that the last game of the season against Austria Klagenfurt was only enough to draw a meager 1-1 didn’t dampen the mood among fans and players alike. It was an amazing season, I’m incredibly proud of the team,” explained coach Matthias Jaissle in the Sky interview, who will also be in charge of coaching in Wals-Siezenheim in the coming season. For the German, it was the first championship with Salzburg. In addition to winning the cup, he can also look back on having reached the last sixteen of the Champions League and looking back on the “Bulls”’ most successful season ever. “It’s a success for the team, they’ve shown every day what they’re capable of. They were greedy, so there is a lot of praise,” emphasized the 34-year-old Jaissle. Here are the best photos: At the championship celebration that followed in front of the casino in Schloss Klessheim, 1,000 liters of free beer were available, befitting the ninth championship in a row to celebrate. One or the other not entirely voluntary beer shower should then also be there.
