Supporters Belt Out A Fantastic Version Of “Last Christmas” Over In The Bundesliga

Yesterday, Hoffenheim hosted Mainz in the final Bundesliga match before the winter break (the league doesn’t recommence play until the weekend of Jan. 18-20). Hoffenheim took the lead through Kerem Demirbay in the 11th minute, but Mainz equalized five minutes later via Jean-Philippe Mateta. 

In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, the match ended in a draw and the spoils were shared. However, the game's true highlight was the visiting Mainz supporters serenading the Rhein-Neckar-Arena with this lovely rendition of “Last Christmas” by English pop duo Wham!. 

I’ve been on Wikipedia, and I can tell you that “Last Christmas” is the most successful Christmas single of all time in Germany — it spent 132 weeks on the German Singles Chart and reached as high as #4. It’s charted every year since 1997, so it’s a pretty big deal out there.
