New York's Football Factory at Legends ? better than ever!

New York's Football Factory at Legends ? better than ever!

At first I have to make a confession. One of my great passions is without a doubt Borussia Dortmund ? its the main reason why Im writing some reports here from time to time. The other passion is that Im a really big New York fan. Of course there are a lot of different meanings about the pros and cons of the Big Apple. But my opinion about New York City is clear: Im sure its hard to find another city where you can find a new attraction even nearly at every corner of the street. And very often you will find some attractions or places of interest which are not mentioned in any of these hundreds of tourist guides about New York City and especially Manhattan. [mehr..]

Borussia all over the globe

Borussia all over the globe

A couple of months ago, the Facebook site of the BVB started collecting pictures that showed fans of Borussia in their jerseys, with their scarfs and flags in a lot of different countries all over the world.When I first saw those pictures, I thought it was a nice idea, but then it came to my mind that it would be much more interesting not only to see the German supporters travel the world but also to get to know supporters in other countries, and especially to get to know their ways of becoming fans of Borussia Dortmund.This is why we are going to introduce you to a supporters club that, at least in the German perspective, is located in Far Far Away Land: Say hi to our friends from Borussia Dortmund Australia!

Football Factory at Legends, New York-The heart of football in the heart of the city

Football Factory at Legends, New York-The heart of football in the heart of the city

Maybe, some of you remember my report about New York having been published on schwatzgelb.com one year ago, regarding the football bar Nevada Smith’s.A visit of this football bar last year was really worthwhile, because we (my wife Cornelia, my brother-in-law Wolfgang and me) had the opportunity to watch the 2:0 win of BVB against Nuremberg live. Furthermore we met a Japanese girl, named Chikako, a BVB supporter as well as a great Shinji Kagawa Fan. [mehr..]

Abbey Road - Walk like the Beatles competition before the Arsenal match

Abbey Road - Walk like the Beatles competition before the Arsenal match

There is a big week coming about a day away.  First we take Munich, then we take London. Borussia Dortmund supporters recently stormed the Arsenal General Sale, bought tickets for the Emirates – it left the AFC Ticket office clueless. All they could do, was to relocate BVB supporters to another block. All they could offer was: No away colours, please! There are ways to work around it: Why not buy the The Unity BVB hat at a yet to be announced meeting point before the match? And why not join the schwatzgelb-Photo-cómpetition at Abbey Road before the big match. [mehr..]

Living Borussia down under

Living Borussia down under

With our personal Twitter channel (@schwatzgelb_com), it is easy to communicate with football fans around the world, especially with fans from our beloved Borussia. Thats how we got in contact with four fans from down under, Australia. This is the story of Matt (@mattlmorris), Ben (@BennyONeill), Beatrice (@footballgidget) and Steven (@Gixibyte). Via e-mail, we talked to them about several things, including their passion to Borussia, how they manage to be informed about our club so many miles away, what do they think about our Australian goalkeeper and how they would evaluate both the Australian and the German football league.

Mallorca and Borussia ? a perfect combination! The perfect day Vol. 2

Mallorca and Borussia ? a perfect combination! The perfect day Vol. 2

Maybe you have read Ida’s report “The perfect day – for many reasons” about our glorious victory against Bayern. Borussia’s fantastic 3:1 after 20 years without a win in Munich is one of many heights during this season. Here’s a small addition to that great Saturday evening. It’s our short story how 5 Dortmund supporters experienced the match live on TV in Mallorca. For us it’s an additional reason why this day was really the perfect day! [mehr..]

Facebook and BVB

Facebook and BVB

Only a few weeks ago the latest shooting star entered Facebook. Felix Magath, the under pressure Gelsenkirchen autocrat, started his account and within minutes had some 6.000 likes under his belly. As of today he storms towards the 140.000 likes sign and has already left traces on the network. He posted a couple of dead funny videos on how he suffers in the coaching zone, explained why Jurado after some 8 months in Germany still needs to adjust to Bundesliga rhythm and announced that he had been on radio.

A great tour where only one thing was missing

A great tour where only one thing was missing

The 100 year anniversary against Freiburg from over a year ago was my last game in the stadium and I think you will excuse me for that since family comes first. I wanted to go to more games but somehow there was always something getting in between and so I had to stay at home. This derby however, I had announced very early and this time it should work out for me to be able to go to the Westfalenstadium again. [mehr..]

First sg.com meeting of the international BVB supporters - see the worldwide mob foto

Before the derby schwatzgelb.coms Steph called our international followers and die hard Borussia supporters from abroad to meet before the match in the beergarden at Borussias old ground the Rote Erde. This tradition-steeped environment provided the perfect location to smell the pre-derby atmosphere and meet up for a chat, some fan-beverages and the traditional stadium sausage. [mehr..]
