Borussia Dortmund wanted to make sure it kept with tradition, despite the unprecedented circumstances throwing a wrench into the equation.
With the Bundesliga being the first of Europe’s major soccer leagues to resume play on Saturday, the German professional soccer club Dortmund earned a 4-0 win over Schalke while playing in an empty stadium.
But that still didn’t stop Dortmund from saluting their usually insane fan section known as the “Yellow Wall.”

Dortmund’s 19-year-old star Erling Haaland explained how the message was “to my fans… to our fans” after the win.
This club man! 😭💛@ErlingHaaland pays tribute to the Dortmund fans who couldn't be at the game today.

We think it was a pretty awesome display by Dortmund, who showed just because the “Yellow Wall” was not actually in attendance, the players still appreciate their support.
