Football is not just a game; it’s an embodiment of emotions that collectively emanate from thousands of elated fans gathered to watch their heroes play before them.
If undeterred fan support is a yardstick to measure a club’s success, there are few that would match Liverpool FC and Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool and Dortmund were honoured with the FIFA Fan Award for their rendition of the moving Reds’ anthem You Never Walk Alone during a Europa League encounter between the two sides at Signal Iduna Park last year, just a day before the 27th anniversary of the tragic Hillsborough Disaster.
After a fan from each club accepted the award at Zurich on Monday, Dortmund won over everybody’s hearts after the club’s Twitter handle dedicated the title to the 96 victims who lost their lives on that fateful day.
