Bundesliga Club Bayer Leverkusen Orders Rain Jackets For Its Fans
Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen "ordered 15,000 rain jackets for its fans" because the stadium's roof is "quite holey," according to Kolsberger & Vom Land of BILD. The remodeling of the BayArena "was supposed to be completed more than two weeks ago" ahead of the team's first home game against SC Freiburg on Sep. 1. However, the roof of the stadium is still full of holes, and to make sure its fans will not sit in the rain the club ordered 15,000 rain jackets for its Europa League home game against FC Metalist Kharkiv on Thursday. Club spokesperson Dirk Mesche said, "There is still some joint filling work to be done between the various plate elements. Just the usual finishing touches, but those will be finally completed after Sunday's Bundesliga game against Mönchengladbach" (BILD, 9/18).
