Penarol’s jaw-dropping fans’ flag

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

And finally… usually aims its focus at on-the-pitch shenanigans but that doesn’t mean we can’t pay tribute to fans when something weird or wonderful occurs. Take, for instance, this video of fans from Club Atlético Peñarol of Uruguay unfurling a flag of such jaw-dropping scale, it dwarfs any flag we’ve seen this side of the Atlantic. Try getting that past stewards in the UK.
