Union Berlin Fans Hold 'Atmosphere Boycott' During First 15 Minutes Against RB Leipzig

Union Berlin Fans Hold 'Atmosphere Boycott' During First 15 Minutes Against RB Leipzig

Union Berlin fans made the unusual decision to stage an "atmosphere boycott" for the first 15 minutes of the club's debut in the Bundesliga.

After being promoted from the second tier and prompting some quite incredible scenes back in May, Union hosted RB Leipzig at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

But with the club's ultras not fans of how the Red Bull backed outfit operate, they decided to not make a single bit of noise in the opening quarter.

When the 15 minute passed however, they slowly but surely created a special atmosphere that might just give you goosebumps.

Sadly for them though, Leipzig took the lead in the 16th minute when Marcel Halstenberg struck for the visitors and set them on their way to a 4-0 thrashing on the opening weekend of the Bundesliga season.

Still, with this being such a historic occasion, it didn't stop them singing at the end of the game. Just listen to this noise:

And in another moment that will make you love everything about Union Berlin, fans remembered late relatives who passed away before seeing their beloved team in the Bundesliga by holding up banners with their faces on.

Bring on the first Berlin derby in the Bundesliga...
