Eintracht Braunschweig Relegated From Bundesliga, Appreciative Fans Still Celebrate Like Title Winners! (Video)

By Chris Wright

A 3-1 defeat away against Hoffenheim on the final day of the season saw perennial underdogs Eintracht Braunschweig relegated back down to the 2. Bundesliga after just one season in the German top flight.

However, due to their side’s plucky performances over the course of the year, the Braunschweig fans stayed behind after the final whistle to celebrate and applaud their players like they’d won the league instead!

Indeed, there was even a touching moment when a young girl clambered down onto the pitch in order to give a yellow and blue rose to coach Torsten Lieberknecht as a token of appreciation…

How nice. Beats watching grown men cry.

    Those subtitles are horrendous

    Absolutely immense. The bit with the little girl giving a yellow and blue rose got me. Bundesliga fans are awesome. Hopefully prices in England will reduce and fans will have that unconditional love than expectancy in the Premierl League one day. Thank you Pies for this find!

  3. Lukass says:

    Ah, Braunschweig fans. To the uninitiated eye they might even seem like a nice bunch when not sacrificing goats or mocking Robert Enke’s suicide. Just saying…

  4. Tom the bees fan says:

    good on them!
    we still get this kind of behavior in the lower leagues in this country but perhaps this has been lost in the premiership due to all the money sloshing about. ticket prices alone mean most people can only afford to go to a couple of games a season, this means there less likely to be as committed to the club win or lose.

    Absolutely lovely!

    Lukass, I take it you’re an opposition fan? :P

  6. Ross says:

    Decent support, bet the players/management felt embarrassed in receiving such support. With regards to the fans abusing Enke and the suicide, I remember reading something about a pig with his number (1) painted on one side? As well as a Hannover scarf? If memory serves me rightly
