Imagine going to an away game with your teammates, but your kits are stolen on the way. It sounds absurd, but unfortunately that is what happened in Mexico.
What initially shocked the players of third division club Leviatán FC quickly raised the question: should the game against Cafetaleros de Tapachula now be called off or even considered bankrupt because they failed to show up? Not at all, because the guests immediately had a creative solution ready!
As kit expert Phil Delves reported on Twitter, Leviatán summarily bought a set of fake jerseys. The model was Inter Milan’s away shirt from the previous season. The players then only stuck the sponsor on the shirts, but not the club crest or the Scudetto.

As creative as this approach was, it was ultimately not successful. The visitors went home with a 2-0 defeat.
