'#FitvormTor' – Campaign matchday against Leipzig

The Werkself entertain third-placed RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Saturday (15.30 CET). Matchday 28 also provides a stage for a day of action on health and diet with many clubs from the top two divisions in Germany taking part. In support of World Health Day (7 April) the clubs will be holding events at their own grounds – as is the case at the BayArena on Saturday.

The Werkself skipper will present his opposite number from Leipzig with a basket of fruit ahead of kick-off. Before that, six members of the Lions Club will hold a banner with the campaign motto '#FitvormTor' ('Fit in front of goal') as the teams come onto the pitch. Furthermore,  the BayArena catering will provide a discount on the popular 'Bulgur Cup' on Saturday.

Away from the campaign matchday, Bayer 04 place great value on the subject of health and diet particular with regard to children and teenagers. In addition to the various, age-related campaigns of the 'Bayer 04 goes to school' project, the club is also committed to providing regular exercise opportunities for youngsters – whether that's every day ('Dance shoes for your kindergarten') or at home games (e.g. the Werkslöwenpass for the concourse at the BayArena). On top of that, Bayer 04 organise a range  of events to make the issue of health and diet for young and old more attractive: For the youngest there are regular physical activity offers including training like the Werkself or training with the patrons (as at the end of March with Dominick Kohr and the Lion Club kids). There are also constant health-related offers for older fans such as cooking lessons, 'football fans in training' for overweight men and women or walking football sessions for the  Silver Lions.

Bayer 04 have other activities planned to raise the profile of the subject of health and diet in the future.
