Brno, May 20 (BD) – The second tier of Czech football resumes next week, with SK Líšeň and FC Zbrojovka Brno both flying the flag for the Moravian capital. Unfortunately for football-starved fans, however, matches will take place behind closed doors due to anti-coronavirus measures, with spectators banned from the stadium.
However, thanks to a new scheme, Zbrojovka fans can be present for their team’s league fixture against Dukla Prague on June 1st, if only in spirit. For a fee of 150 crowns, fans can submit a photo of themselves, which will then be scaled up and mounted on a seat at the club’s Srbská stadium, offering them a chance to cheer their team on symbolically until the stadium reopens to the public. The money raised through the scheme will go to the club’s youth section.
“As soon as your portrait is placed, we will send you a photo so you can see how it looks in the stands, so that you can show off on social media,” said club spokesman Martin Lísal.
Fans can take part by paying 150 crowns at the club’s e-shop, then sending their photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With 11 games played out of 30, Zbrojovka Brno are currently in 5th place in the league, with SK Líšeň in 9th.
