Stadium-wide tifos? That’s so ten years ago.
If you want to step your club’s tifo game up, take a lesson from FC Copenhagen. Ahead of their derby clash against rivals Brondby, the Danish side’s fans choreographed an enormously intricate, interactive tifo that will blow away any and all challengers. Literally!
Check it out:
First, the fans unfurl a giant banner picturing a cannon directed at Brondby’s home stadium, along with the message “The order has been given to shoot down the enemy.”
Then, a fan runs along the top of the banner with an actual ‘cannon ball’ attached to a fishing rod contraption, until said cannon ‘smashes’ into the rivals’ stadium. At that moment, the first layer of the tifo brilliantly drops away to reveal Brondby’s stadium on fire. For good measure, black smoke flares are set off as well. Finally, a third banner drops down with the message “Copenhagen is ours!”
