Amazonians' unforgettable experience with Borussia Dortmund
When do you ever have the chance to meet the stars of your favorite Bundesliga club in person? – For Peter Gall and 74 other colleagues from the fulfillment centers, their wish has come true. For the premiere of the "Inside Borussia Dortmund" series on Prime Video, Amazon had gifted tickets to employees and one accompanying person each. Peter Gall got the coveted tickets for himself and his wife: " It was very emotional for me," says the technician from the fulfillment center Dortmund: "I practically grew up in the “Westfalenstadion” and have witnessed several matches." Many memories came flooding back: "Even tears were rolling down my cheeks", he admits with emotion.
Camil Idzik's heart actually beats for another club: "I think I'm the only Schalke fan here today," he says, smiling. "But my wife is a BVB fan. For that reason alone, I am thrilled to be here." Renate Pohlmann won premiere tickets, too: "I was working in the receiving department when our boss surprised me with the tickets. I was so happy! " Some employees even wept for joy at the prospect of meeting their BVB stars," says Markus Neumayer, site manager at Amazon in Rheinberg. "Everyone will remember this day for a long time to come."
The winners first met their idols on the red or black carpet and were then able to enter the stadium through the players’ tunnel. After that, they talked to Amazon.de country manager Ralf Kleber and some of the players, and watched an episode of the new series "Inside Borussia Dortmund" on a big screen before gathering for the after-show party together with the guests of honour.
