A variety of solutions have been put forth to try and fill the void left by no fans being allowed into stadiums if sports are to restart anytime soon. Bundesliga became the first non-KBO league to start back up again a few weeks back, and they started off with completely empty seats and some crowd noise pumped into the broadcast. The KBO put some cardboard cutouts of fans in their seats (filled with corporate advertising), and one South Korean soccer team got in trouble for accidentally putting sex dolls instead of mannequins in their bleachers.

Today, Borussia Mönchengladbach faced off against Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the latest Bundesliga match to be played. Mönchengladbach became the first team in a major professional sport to take the cardboard cutout concept to (nearly) its logical extreme and filled their stadium with 13,000 cardboard cutouts of fans, who could pay 19 Euros to have their likeness in attendance this afternoon.
