Fake Fans – level 2

11-05-2020 15:00

South Korean baseball officials pushed back the start of the country’s professional league. There were many people sick with the coronavirus, and it was not safe to start the league.

This week, the league has finally started. However, fans could not enter the stadiums, which made them stressed and unhappy.

During the first game, some fans stood by the stadium, and they tried to watch the game through the barriers. Organizers covered the seats at the stadium with photos of fake fans wearing masks.

The home-team decided to set up a board at the stadium to make the fans happy. Fans could remotely join the game and cheer for the teams.

Difficult words: barrier (a fence that stops people from getting in a place), home-team (a sports team that is playing at its own stadium), remotely (from another place).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
