Caption:6th April 2020, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany; The first "cardboard comrades" - fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach - who come out of the printer are controlled by Thomas Heyer, an employee of a printing company. The fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach want to contribute to a better mood at possible ghost games in the German football league. In order to spare TV viewers and professionals a view of the empty stadium seats, cardboard figures showing the likeness of the supporters are to be set up life-size - if desired, where the spectators stand or sit during normal games.
