“Mit Schmackes”, the Dortmund bar of world champion Kevin Grosskreutz, has also joined the boycott of the World Cup in Qatar. The guests of the former national player and long-time BVB professional will not be able to see any live games in his home town.
“We love football and can also say that we live football,” it said in an Instagram message under the heading “No World Cup broadcast”.
However, the “reasons for the step are obvious – that’s why we will not broadcast the games of the World Cup in Qatar, even if this results in a loss of revenue for us.”
According to the pub, it wants to make a donation to the human rights organization Amnesty International as part of its annual Christmas voucher campaign.
