Many fans have come up with extraordinary plans to support their beloved teams but none so like the fans of Motor Lublin who rented cranes to watch their team race. ‘Mask On’: Indian Tennis Player Adil Kalyanpur’s Rap Song on COVID-19 Virus Goes Viral (Watch Video).
Fans of the Polish racing Motor team Lublin rented 21 cranes and climbed on them in order to watch their club in action against GKM Grudziaz at a local speedway track. Speedway Extraleague (Speedway Ekstraliga) is one of the most followed sports in Poland and is the country’s most popular sport and is followed by more number of people than even football. The fans parked those cranes outside the stadium and then lifted them as high as possible to get a good view of their team in action.
The fans also brought flares with them to show their support for the team from long-distance out and their efforts did not go in vain as their team won by a scoreline of 58-32. Take a look at the video of fans using cranes to watch their team play.
