The sports of Football & Tennis came together yesterday in protest.
Seville fans took to throwing hundreds of tennis balls onto the pitch shortly after kick-off. They were upset about their match against Levantes being moved back to allow the El Clasico sole possession of the TV coverage.
A banner was also held up in sarcastic reference to Real’s Manager “Stop the match, Mourinho is talking”. Quite witty actually.
This is not the first time tennis balls have been used to cause chaos at a football match. FC Basel turned against their most famous supporter in Roger Federer a few years back when their watch was moved in order to give his match against Novak Djokovic top billing with the TV.
Compare the two matches. Which team has the best ball skills?
