German Soccer Team Energie Cottbus Refunds Money To Fans After Sucking Against Schalke 04

energie-cottbusEven the most devoted fans have their limits. That’s why German Bundesliga soccer club Energie Cottbus refunded money to 600 of their fans, knowing their patience might be a bit tested.

The 600 fans had traveled to Gelsenkirchen from their homes in Cottbus, a journey of almost 400 miles, in order to watch Energie Cottbus play Schalke 04. They would have enjoyed the match much more had Energie Cottbus sent their players on the road trip as well. Schalke 04 won the match 4-0.

The loss was Energie Cottbus’ 6th in their last 7 matches, and the team is now the 2nd worst in the Bundesliga and facing relegation.

The club notified their fans of the refund by sending out a press release titled, “Sorry.” In the press release, the team said, “”By refunding the cost of admission for their supporters, the red and whites would like to apologise for the pitiful performance which they displayed at the Veltins Arena.”

Judging by how bad this season has gone, the team might want to consider offering season ticket refunds as well.
