Fenerbahce Play Tribute To Couple Who Passed Away

Fenerbahce have paid tribute to famous fans Mumtaz Amca and Ihsan Teyze, who have both passed away in recent years, by placing cardboard cutouts of the couple at their seats.

The pair rarely missed a game at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium during their years as fans before Mumtaz sadly passed away a few years ago, his wife Ihsan also died recently.

With the club currently playing behind closed doors, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, they have been able to pay tribute to the pair.

Their pictures have been made into cardboard cutouts and placed in the seats that they often took up to watch their team play.

Posting on Twitter, the club said, "Our Aunt İhsan and Uncle Mümtaz will be with us tomorrow, as in every match."

"You are in our hearts, we will not forget you."

Fans have been absent for most sport around the world throughout a majority of 2020 and it's not the first time cardboard cutouts have been seen at grounds.

Joe Exotic was spotted amongst the Leeds United fans at Elland Road earlier in the year, with fans able to buy a seat for their cutout.

Other fans have made sure they haven't missed out on seeing their team play in rather inventive ways, with Porto fans scaling the roof of the ground just to watch a game.
