The Inflation of Fans Who Storm Pitch to Get Kit

Recent times have brought an irritating trend to football pitches - fans illegally entering the pitch to not only meet their idol but also to get their kit.

Fans Illegally Enter Pitch to Get Kit Of Players

As seen in many recent matches, fans stormed the pitches to get close to the game's superstars like Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Haaland, to take a selfie and to ask for the kit. This mostly happened after the match but sometimes even during the 90 minutes, in the middle of the game.

On 24 October 2021, Lionel Messi was stopped on the counter-attack by an idiot Marseille fan.

Fans make placards asking for player's kit

The players who are the target, meanwhile, react differently. After wins, they sometimes even celebrate with the fan (Haaland), something that will not prevent fans from invading the pitch in the future.

Another trend that can be monitored is the ever-rising number of fans asking for a player's kit using self-made placards. This is of course much better and justified than storming the field.
