Meanwhile In Denmark Soccer, Shots Have Been Fired

  • Rick Chandler

The ProSoccerTalk headline kind of says it all: ‘FC Copenhagen’s Supporters Have Won Tifo For The Foreseeable Future’.

Of course you’re familiar with the word: tifo is an elaborate banner, often accompanied with choreography, displayed by soccer fans — usually in Europe, but now it’s catching on in the MLS as well. This one’s from the FC Copenhagen match against Brondby this weekend, and it’s magnificent.

In case you can’t see the video for some reason, we’ve got a cannon firing a shot across the banner, hitting a stadium, which then crumbles and goes up in flame and smoke. Well done. On a scale of 1-10 … 10.


To the fans from other countries: The first banner says “The order has been given – shoot down the enemy” and the second says “Copenhagen is ours!”
