German party planners select Cup celebration venue
Question of the Day
BERLIN (AP) - Germany’s players will celebrate at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate if they defeat Argentina in the World Cup final.
Coach Joachim Loew’s team is expected to return home Tuesday morning after Sunday’s final in Rio de Janeiro.
The German football federation on Thursday said Berlin and Frankfurt offered to host possible title celebrations. The federation and the team decided on the capital.
Federation president Wolfgang Niersbach said Berlin’s sprawling fan mile, which occupies the road leading up to the city’s signature Brandenburg Gate, “would be an ideal place to thank fans in all of Germany for their sensational support” if the team wins its first World Cup in 24 years.
General manager Oliver Bierhoff says there won’t be a party with the fans unless Germany wins the title.
