Passion for video games is everywhere and, sometimes, it reaches unexpected places. Proof of this is that a group of soccer fans decided to support their team with a great tribute to The Last of Us. To do so, they filled the stands with characters from the franchise in a show of love for the sport and the Naughty Dog saga.
The Last of Us arrives in a spectacular way to soccer stadiums.
The German team Greuther Fürth recently played a match against Jahn Regensburg, as part of the Bundesliga. Fortunately for their fans, Greuther Fürth beat their opponents 2-1, so it seems that the support of their fans paid off.
The match attendees showed off by displaying an oversized Ellie and several infected to support their team. The fans even had Ellie become one of them, as they modified her iconic arm tattoo and turned it into the team's name.
Greuther Fürth did not hesitate to share a picture of the moment on social networks, so we can see the great tribute that soccer fans made to The Last of Us and its characters. Of course, this thrilled fans of the franchise, who joined in the celebrations.
But why would Greuther Fürth fans use The Last of Us to support their team? According to comments on social networks, fans know that one of the themes of the saga is the struggle for survival.
