Borussia Mönchengladbach have invited fans to have a cardboard cutout of themselves placed in the stadium in case future games are played behind closed doors.

For a small fee of 19 euros, plus a 2.50 euro contribution to the fan group organising the setup and a donation to the ‘Borussia help Borussia’ charitable programme, supporters can have a life-sized photo in the stands.

The German Bundesliga club’s Borussia-Park is quickly filling up with cardboard fans after the scheme was overwhelmed with applications with over 8000 already inside.

The top German leagues could be set for a return with a decision due in May on whether so-called ‘ghost games’ can be played with a maximum of 213 people in the stadium.
