Fans of the sold-out stadium are already in party mode 90 minutes early, as in theory a draw is enough for the FCM to clarify the promotion.

But the boys of coach Christian Titz are not aiming for a draw. The third division leader wants to win and deserves the lead!

23 minutes: Top scorer Baris Atik frees Jason Ceka, who turns and hits the left corner of the goal with his right hand – 1: 0!

The 2nd championship is very, very close and at the latest with the 2-0 after an own goal by Davy Frick (40th) of Zwickau he can’t take it anymore.

Remarkable: Before the big break, the FCM wants more. Also in the second half there was a storm until the final whistle. Substituting Kai Brünker (88th) for 3-0, a deserved consequence.

Captain Tobias Müller: “It will be a long night with little sleep. We deserve it, we will let it tear in the next few days “.

And Jason Ceka: “I don’t even know what to say. Last year I played in the regional championship and now I’m going to the 2nd championship.”

Also WITH successful coach Christian Titz (50)!

BILD already revealed in December that his contract would be extended if he was promoted. Sporting director Otmar Schork officially announced yesterday: “We will continue!”

Reason enough for Titz himself to switch to party mode. The announcement of him after the players surprised him with a shower of beer and champagne during the press conference: “I’m a carnival type, I’ll party until my eyes close and enjoy the day.”

After the cheers in the locker room, it’s time to celebrate with the fans in the parking lot behind Block U and the team’s internal party in the business club. Schork: “We’ll let it tear.”
