Haldenwang, 16 October 2021. With the start of the festivities at 2 p.m., the Haldenwang senoir team played against Waltenhofen and thus opened the football afternoon. As this game was a friendly match, victory was a matter of honour. The hosts were able to claim the victory. They won with 2:0 goals against the guests.
After the successful match, the "MAHA Waldstadion" was officially inaugurated. For this purpose, the first teams from Haldenwang and Untrasried marched hand in hand onto the pitch with their player escort children, accompanied by music, and then positioned themselves in a line. The bambinos could hold the ten-metre-long red ribbon, which was ceremoniously cut by the football department head of “TV Haldenwang”, Klaus Wanner, and MAHA managing director, Stefan Fuchs, with a large pair of scissors under a shower of golden glitter.
Beforehand, the speakers emphasised the importance of the cooperation between “TV Haldenwang” and the local employer MAHA. "Based on the idea of the foundation, we are pleased to be able to support the local association here on site and also to take this opportunity to address potential junior staff as future employees at MAHA," said Stefan Fuchs. Anton Klotz, in his functions as former district administrator, long-time mayor of Haldenwang and Chairman of the board of trustees of the non-profit Rauch Family Foundation, emphasised the always pleasant cooperation and the importance of supporting local associations.

After the ceremony, the referee blew his whistle again for the match. This time the two first teams from Haldenwang and Untrasried had a duel, which the hosts could not win this time. Despite the defeat, the mood of the players and spectators was in no way dampened. The physical well-being was well provided for and the appropriate music contributed to a successful joint celebration.
