Opel News - Swinging stadium: Cassandra Steen to perform with huge fan choreography

Rüsselsheim/Mainz. The OPEL ARENA will celebrate its official opening with a bang on Sunday, August 7. The fans can already prepare for the friendly between 1. FSV Mainz 05 and Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC at the festival in front of the stadium as of 13:30 CET. Live music and post-match interviews with players can be seen on the center stage provided by radio partner RPR.1. Opel will bring a Rallye ADAM driving simulator, the Opel merchandising truck and the CarUnity, the Opel carsharing community, event tent to the summer festival. Furthermore, Opel commercial vehicles will organize a special trick shot competition involving the loading beds of Opel Movano and co.


German broadcaster SAT.1 will start its live coverage of the friendly at 15:25 CET. Cassandra Sheen will send shivers down the spectators’ spines when she sings with the fans and is accompanied by a choreography involving 3,000 Opel employees. The 25 player escorts, who won their places by taking part in various competitions in the build-up to the event, will also be part of the performance. In addition, six lucky winners will be allowed to sit on red Opel sofas positioned directly next to the benches during the match. The game in the OPEL ARENA will kick off at 15:45. And the best thing is: A small allocation of tickets is still available from the usual ticket offices and the online shop.
