Dortmund fans show class; offer beds for travelling Monaco supporters

Stranded Monaco fans were offered free accommodation by fans in Dortmund after Tuesday's Champions League match was called off following the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus.

Hundreds of French fans had nowhere to sleep in the west German city after the quarterfinal, first-leg, was called off just before the 2045 (1845 GMT) kick-off after three explosions hit the Borussia team bus en route to the match.

The Dortmund team was left badly shaken by the attack and defender Marc Bartra underwent wrist surgery after being hit by flying glass.

Many Monaco supporters, who had planned to travel back to France directly after the game, found they had nowhere to sleep when the game was postponed until 1845 on Wednesday, with their tickets still valid.

However, a heart-warming spontaneous initiative from Dortmund fans via Twitter meant many found a place to sleep for the night under the hashtag #bedforawayfans.

Here are some of the tweets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The match will now be played on Wednesday along with the other two Champions League ties.
