Japanese Away Fans Sit with Cardboard Cutouts to Pad Numbers

When you don't have enough real fans...create fake ones?

That was the strategy employed by supporters of Japanese club Omiya Ardija this week, as the limited travelling support devised a clever ploy to boost their presence.

The dozen or so fans who made the trip of more than 300 miles to Tokushima Vortis brought with them twice as many cardboard cutouts, each sporting a shirt of the proper colour.

Not bad! From afar (and through blurred eyes) it even almost looks authentic... well, close enough.
