During Newcastle United match against Borussia Dortmund last night, English fans were seen praising the price charged by the Bundesliga side for tickets.

There were even signs at the Signal Iduna Park thanking the German club for charging a relatively low price for such a big Champions League clash.

‘Change from £20, thank BVB’ read the sign.

The message from Newcastle fans got to Borussia Dortmund’s board, and Sky Deutschland now features an interesting story about it.

The outlet has some quotes from the German club’s managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke, who commented on the attitude of the Magpies’ supporters.

“We were very pleased about that,” said Watzke.

“It really annoys us when our international fans sometimes pay almost €70 for the cheapest ticket.”

Watzke expressed a “big thank you” to Newcastle fans, praising their attitude in their two games.

“For their sporting, fair behaviour. Both in England and here in Dortmund.”

Newcastle first lost to Borussia Dortmund 1-0 at St. James’ Park, and were defeated by the Bundesliga side once again in Germany last night, this time 2-0.

That means the Magpies are in a more complicated situation in the Champions League now, at the bottom of Group F with four points in four matches. And the upcoming challenges aren’t any easier, as they’ll be facing Paris Saint Germain and then AC Milan.
