The team was given a heroes’ welcome back in Frankfurt on Monday, when thousands of flag-waving fans turned up in front of the city hall to show their appreciation for coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg and her players. “It’s crazy that a performance is recognized over several weeks and not only with a win,” Voss-Tecklenburg said.

In addition to Hamburg's first mayor Peter Tschentscher and Bernd Neuendorf, President of the German Football Association, HSV sports director Jonas Boldt and actor Oliver Dittrich, friend of the Seeler family, will speak. This was announced by the Senate of the Hanseatic city on Tuesday.
