As suspended Bundesliga league ready to start by May 9. Fans of German club, Borussia Monchengladbach paid for more than 8,000 cardboard cutouts of themselves to fill their stadium, if matches are play behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A prerequisite for any resumption would be the playing of matches behind closed doors, with no more than 213 people in a stadium, players or staff.
As part of the campaign, Gladbach fans are able to buy cardboard cutouts of themselves for €19.00 to fill Borussia-Park, the club’s home stadium, if the remaining 2019/20 matches are played behind closed doors and profits from the sales of cutouts will go towards charity.
Borussia Monchengladbach fans, have now thought of a unique way to fill up their stadium in case fans aren’t allowed to enter the stadium by starting a ‘Stay at home. Be in the stands’ campaign.
The german club fans representative Thomas Weinmann said: “The campaign organisers are regularly overrun with orders.
“We can hardly keep up trying to install them, but we’re obviously delighted with the overwhelming response it has received.
“If we don’t play in the next few months and the season is cancelled, then the Bundesliga will no longer exist in the form we have come to know.
