May 18th, 2022, gave Eintracht Frankfurt one of the greatest successes in the club’s history, and from now on it will be remembered as a memorable day not only in the history books of all soccer lovers and romantics. The Germans manage the sensation and win the Europa League final against the Glasgow Rangers in Seville – all of soccer Germany stands on its head. But this is not only a sporting feat, the Frankfurt fan scene also creates a real highlight. The Germans have already drawn attention to themselves throughout the entire Europa League season – in a positive sense. The “home game” in the Camp Nou (Barcelona) was unforgettable. There were more than 30,000 Frankfurt Eintracht fans in the stadium. In Seville at the final, there were about 50,000 fans of the Hessians, although only about 10,000 were able to watch the game in the stadium. Madness!
And right in the middle: The guys from Tankard, not least with their legendary performance at the extremely emotional Fanfest before said final.
It’s no secret that the musicians (and the manager) of the band Tankard are among the biggest Eintracht Frankfurt fans. Their club anthem “Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee” is played before every home game of the Bundesliga club and is sung along loudly by 50,000 throats.
Just in time for the release of the new EP, the band today also released the new music video, which was recorded at the big fan festival for the Europa League final on May 18th, 2022 in Seville.
“After the complete Waldstadion in the last few years continuously sang “We’ll get the U-UEFA CUP” instead of “We’ll get the DFB Cup” during the players’ run-in during the refrain of “Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee” (Black and white like snow), it was obvious to record a new version of our song with slightly changed lyrics at some point. Not least because of the incredible emotions at our performance at the Fan-Fest in Sevilla on 18.05.22 and the subsequent win of the Euroleague, we decided to put this into action now.
After I was allowed to perform “Schwarz-Weiß wie Schnee” (Black and white like snow) live in different versions and music styles together with Roy Hammer & and the Pralinèes and Revolte Tanzbein, we had the idea to get these two bands on board for this EP. I think we more than succeeded in this genre-spanning experiment and we are more than grateful to both bands for their versions.
Without in any way diminishing the terrific performance of the current team: Jürgen Grabowski, however, was, is and will forever remain the greatest Eintracht player of all time. Not only was the Euro-League won for Eintracht’s honorary captain, who sadly passed away far too early this year, but this EP is of course also dedicated to him! Therefore also the title: With the Jürgen! For Jürgen!
We would like to thank Eintracht-TV and our roadie Frank Schlund, who provided us with the footage from the fan festival in Seville to realize this video clip and to capture the unbelievable atmosphere forever! A day for eternity!”
