Danish Club FC Midtjylland Planning 'Drive In Football' As Solution To Behind Closed Doors Fixtures
Danish club FC Midtjylland might just have come up with the perfect way to get around having to play fixtures behind closed doors.
As is the case for a plethora of leagues in Europe and beyond, the Danish top flight has been postponed indefinitely and when football does return following COVID-19, the reality is that there will be no fans in attendance for games.
However the Danish Super League have alternative plans to ensure their supporters as involved as possible for home games.
They are hoping to set up two big screens for 10,000 fans to watch games from 2,000 cars that will be allowed to park around the MCH Arena.
If a test involving 2,000 cars works, they will look at allowing even more supporters to turn out. The club have confirmed they been in regular dialogue with the police and the health authorities over their plans.
To add to the 'Drive-in football' experience, the Danish outfit are also planning have the audio from the TV commentary transmitted to the radio waves in the vehicles via a specified frequency.

Midtjylland marketing and support director Preben Rokkjaer commented: "In the coming time when we unfortunately have to play the Super League without spectators, we are working hard to create the best possible experience.
"[Drive-in football] will go a long way to giving something back to the region and our many loyal fans.
"We have a stated goal of creating the best stadium experience and coronavirus doesn't change that, it just provides some other preconditions. We are in close dialogue with the police, the Herning Municipality and MCH to create a safe framework and security for everyone."
Behind closed doors football takes away a lot of the magic but this is definitely the next best thing.
