Players to Pay Fans to Turn Up

After an embarassing turn out at their first home in the UEFA Champions League this season when only just over 4,000 fans turned up at Zagreb’s Maksimir Stadium, Dinamo Zagreb player Mateo Kovacic has come up with a novel idea to fill the stadium when they play PSG.

Kovacic has released a video on his Facebook profile where he takes a video camera into the Dinamo dressing room and reveals his idea to his team-mates.

Dinamo players will reward one supporter with one million kuna (135,000 euros) if Dinamo’s Maksimir stadium is a sell out for the match against PSG. “Whatever you say, just that we fill the stadium,” said Dinamo’s Croatian international Joe Simunic when Kovacic runs the idea past him.

Dinamo face PSG, who will bring a host of stars to Zagreb including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on 24 October.
