Some Sevilla Fans Snuck Into Europa League Final Dressed In Suits
No supporters have been allowed in the grounds due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and though some have hired cranes to get the perfect view from above, these Sevilla fans blagged it big-time when they dressed up in suits.
Seemingly convincing security they were Sevilla officials, they were seen and heard cheering the team on from the stands in the Stadium Koln - causing commentator Ian Darke to make a remark about them early on.

You'd have thought the security presence would have been seriously tight, with only those who work for the club and select media such as journalists and photographers allowed to attend the fixture.
But kudos to the clever fans for getting where water can't get. And to make it even better, they were witnessing a brilliant final in the flesh.
Romelu Lukaku put Inter 1-0 up with his 34th goal of the season from the spot after Diego Carlos gave away a third successive penalty in the Europa League knockout stages.
But then Luuk De Jong, the hero in the semi-final against Manchester United, turned the game around with two brilliant headers, his second goal coming just two minutes before Diego Godin produced an aerial gem of his own to make it 2-2 in an all-action first half.
