I love this.
During a soccer match on Easter Sunday, opposing soccer fans chanted at each other.
However these were not the usual taunts one would expect from soccer fans. The opposing fans took turns chanting “Christ Is Risen” and “Truly He Is Risen.”
Moscow, April 5, Interfax – Fans greeted each other on Easter at a Sunday evening soccer match at Moscow Lokomotiv stadium.
At the beginning of the second half of the match thousands of fans of Dynamo team started chanting “Christ is Risen!”, an Interfax correspondent reports.
Thousands of fans of Lokomotiv teeam on the opposite side of the stadium responded by chanting “Truly He is Risen!”
The exchange took place several times.
The correspondent who has attended soccer matches for almost 50 years says it was the occurrence of this kind in the history of Russian soccer.
