- The Bundesliga is expected to resume from May 9th, much to the ire of the fans.
- However, Monchengladbach fans have a way to make their stadiums seem full even amid COVID-19 restrictions.
- The idea is to use life-size cardboard cutouts of the fans - with some even donning face masks.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, Borussia Monchengladbach fans have come up with a novel way to make their stadium seem fuller.
The Bundesliga is expected to restart on May 9th but even if that happens, social distancing norms and restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic may force the league to play matches behind closed doors.
The decision to restart the Bundesliga has not been met kindly by the fans. However, Monchengladbach fans have found a solution to the problem - more or less.
Super-imposing themselves onto life-size cardboard cutouts is how the fans are preparing for the restart of the season.
Incidentally, some of the faces are even seen donning face masks, making for quite a sight.
Unlike Bundesliga fans, we'll have to wait longer for Premier League action to be resumed. As things stand now, the campaign won't be restarted until at least June.
It's not yet clear if it's going to be resumed at all due to the coronavirus spread. According to the Guardian, there are calls to end the season early.
Sky Sports have brought some good news on Saturday saying that the Gunners will return to London Colney next week to keep up fitness.
