Above is a tweet from Tobi Schweinsteiger, older brother of Bastian Schweinsteiger and reserve team player (Tobi’s tweet means “Where there’s a will there’s a way” in German.). He and several other fans rented an apartment in a skyscraper overlooking the CSKA Moscow stadium since they could not get tickets to the game. The game was played in an empty stadium due to a ban handed down for racism from CSKA Moscow fans which meant the game was forced to be played behind “closed doors.” These Bayern Munich fans knew that they could still see from the roof so they rented this apartment in order to watch the game. Bayern Munich was so impressed by this that they will be reimbursing these fans to reward them for their commitment and even Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller voiced their gratitude when they heard about the lengths their fans went to see them play. Take note soccer fans around the world, this is how you become a true fan.
