A trophy has been created for Leverkusen.

“After the home match against Augsburg, Leverkusen will be presented with the trophy for the first time in the club’s history,” the German media outlet Bild reported on Sept. 18 (local time). The ‘Meister Chalet’ already has the words ‘Bayer 04 Leverkusen 2024’ engraved on it,” Bild reported.

Leverkusen’s run to the Bundesliga title has been the biggest storyline of the season, and they’ve finally gotten their hands on the trophy for the first time in club history.

Leverkusen were officially crowned Bundesliga champions on April 15 (local time) with a 5-0 shutout win over Werder Bremen in the 29th round of the 2023/24 Bundesliga at the Bayer Arena in Leverkusen, Germany.

Goals from Victor Boniface and Granit Xhaka set the tone for Leverkusen, who also saw Germany’s top talent Florian Wirz score his first hat-trick as a professional, sending the fans in the stands into a frenzy.

The victory extended Leverkusen’s unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to 29 games, a Bundesliga record at the time. But Leverkusen fans didn’t care about that, instead celebrating their club’s first Bundesliga title.

They wanted it so badly that they couldn’t contain their joy when they were about to seal the title. As the game entered the final 10 minutes of the second half, supporters jumped out of the stands and began standing behind billboards on the side of the stadium. When Wirz scored his second goal in the 38th minute of the second half, thousands of fans poured onto the pitch, knocking down billboards and creating chaos.

Wirz and Leverkusen players pleaded with fans to leave the stadium, fearing that the game could be canceled at the last minute. The game resumed under a cloud of red flames, and when Wirz completed his hat trick in the 45th minute, more supporters flooded onto the pitch to celebrate.

The referee didn’t restart the game, but blew the whistle immediately, making Leverkusen’s historic victory official. As soon as the whistle 토토사이트 blew, thousands of fans poured onto the pitch to congratulate the Leverkusen players, with Jeremy Frimpong and Wirz hugging everyone in sight and taking countless photos.

After so many giddy moments and heartbreaks over the years, Leverkusen have now ended Munich’s dominance and ushered in a new era for Leverkusen, who will now receive the Bundesliga title, the Meister Schalle, in the final match of the season.

According to the media, the chalet will be handed over to Leverkusen captain Lukas Hradecki by two German Football Association officials, Mark Lenz and Steffen Merkel. The original will be kept at Leverkusen over the summer and will be returned to the association at the start of the new season, with Leverkusen receiving a replica in return. A showcase for the championship trophy has already been set up in the entrance lobby of Leverkusen’s home stadium, the BayArena.

Despite winning the league title, Leverkusen’s incredible season is far from over. They are currently on a 50-match unbeaten streak with just three games remaining. In addition to this league match against Augsburg, Leverkusen have a Europa League final against Atalanta and a DFB Pokal final against Kaiserslautern.

If they win all three games, they will not only be unbeaten in all competitions this season, but they will also have the honor of completing a mini-treble of Bundesliga-Pokal-Europa titles.
