Tomorrow, May 23, will see a meeting of Borussia Monchengladbach with Bayer Leverkusen in the second round after the resumption of the German Football League championship, which was interrupted by the outbreak of the Corona virus.
The stands of the Borussia Monchengladbach team stadium will witness a unique presence of “silent” fans.
Where the team’s stands will be filled with cardboard sculptures to fill the empty seats, as the club gave its fans the opportunity to get a full-size stereoscopic image of them to put in the stands for 19 euros per stereo.

The president of the team of fans, Thomas Ludwik, revealed to the German sports club “Seed”, saying, “We have installed nearly 13,000 solids, but the request has reached about 20,000.”
For his part, the club’s sporting director, Marx Eberle, described the move as “brilliant”, saying “a brilliant operation creates an atmosphere on the field and at the same time reminds that football without fans is not the same.”
Team coach Marco Roze expressed his happiness, saying, “It is wonderful. You really feel that you are not alone when you go to the field,” according to the AS newspaper.
It is reported that the Borussia Monchengladbach team is in third place, 6 points behind leaders Bayern Munich.
