Borussia Dortmund do not mess about. The German giants have just cancelled 500 fans' season tickets for next season because they did not attend enough home games.
The club are known for offering incredibly good value for money in terms of their season tickets, with the cheapest available for less than £200.
There's also an incredible demand for the tickets as in October it was announced that nearly 50,000 supporters were on the waiting list.
And with that being said, Dortmund newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten are reporting the club have terminated season tickets for those who didn't go to at least seven of the 17 Bundesliga home games at Signal Iduna Park.
"500 [Borussia Dortmund] season ticket holders received a termination of their subscription at the end of this season because they were too rarely in the stadium. A large part of the #BVB supporters welcome the action, but there is also clear criticism." https://t.co/T9L4W0WHAz- Empty Seats Galore (@EmptySeatsPics) June 1, 2019

Harsh but fair when there's such heavy competition imo. More clubs should follow suit. pic.twitter.com/gODAx2Qau4
It's a bit brutal and it's caused split opinions amongst Dortmund fans but with so many fans waiting in the wings, you can understand why BVB have made the decision.
Meanwhile Dortmund are reportedly receiving around €5 million for featuring in a behind the scenes Amazon documentary.
The 4-6 part series will give fans access to training sessions and dressing room action, highlight Lucien Favre's side's journey in the Bundesliga, where they almost snatched the title from Bayern Munich, but missed out by just two points.
