Fortuna Blues, Stockwell and O'Neill on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 10th Jan 2020 17:07
The Fortuna Blues, legend Mick Stockwell and general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill will be among the guests on Saturday’s Life’s a Pitch, which comes live from the FanZone ahead of the game against Accrington Stanley (BBC Radio Suffolk, 12 midday to 2pm). Host Mark Murphy will be joined by legend-in-residence Terry Butcher, Tractorboy and TWTD's Phil Ham.
More than 100 supporters of Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf will be making their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road for the 15th time.
The Fortuna Blues will again be joined on their travels by their former striker Frank Mayer as well as Ilja Ludenberg, the club’s one-time stadium announcer.
Well-known Hamburg-based football journalist and author Carsten Germann will also be on the trip, along with Lars Pape and Holger Schürmann.
Pape is a well-known TV actor in Germany, mainly in detective series, while he and fellow Fortuna fan Schürmann have made two football-related films in recent years, Warum Halb Vier? (Why Half Past Three?) and Fortunas Legenden: Tradition Kann Man Nicht Kaufen (Fortuna Legends: Tradition Cannot Be Bought).
