Man City fans are only just realising Young Boys' stadium name ahead of Champions League clash

Man City fans are only just realising Young Boys' stadium name ahead of Champions League clash

Manchester City take on Young Boys in their third Champions League group game of the season.

Manchester City taking on Young Boys is a bizarre sentence to say already, but it's made even worse by the club's stadium name.

The reigning European Champions play the Swizz outfit in Berne on Wednesday night, having achieved back-to-back 3-1 win overs Red Star Belgrade and RB Leipzig in their previous two Champions League fixtures.

Although they will have to contend with a plastic, astroturf pitch, City will look to make it three out of three ahead of the derby with rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Young Boys have competed against English opposition in the Champions League on many an occasion, coming up against the likes of Spurs and Manchester United.

However, fans have now been made aware of the fact that Young Boys play their home games at the Wankdorf Stadium.

The jokes really do write themselves and plenty of supporters have been having a little laugh over the innuendo.

One wrote: "A team called Young Boys playing in a stadium called Wankdorf…"

A second said: "Playing young boys in Wankdorf brill."

A third weighed in: "Whoever decided to name a stadium containing a team with the name Young Boys, 'Wankdorf' is a vile vile troll."

A fourth fan added: "My world is crumbling after finding out a team called 'Young Boys' plays in the 'Wankdorf Stadium'."

A fifth commented: "So the team is called Young boys wankdorf? that’s crazy."

The ground used to be known as 'Stade de Suisse before it reverted to its old name as a nod to Wankdorf neighbourhood which is is located in.

In old German, 'Wankdorf' actually means "village on a green meadow”.

Young Boys was formed by a quartet of high school students back in March 1898 and their name is inspired by the Basel Old Boys Association team which had been formed four years earlier.
