In Minute sieben des Spiels Union gegen Bochum unterbrach Schiri Weiner die Partie und die Unionspieler - auch die Ersatzspieler -  versammelten sich vor der Haupttribüne, auf der der an Krebs erkrankte Benny Köhler mit seiner Familie saß. Die Jungs zogen ihre Trikots aus, darunter hatten sie alle T-Shirts mit der Trikotnummer vom erkrankten Benjamin Köhler.

Schon vor dem Spiel hatten bei der Aufstellungsverkündung alle Spieler auf dem Platz denselben Nachnamen - Köhler Fußballgott.
