Borussia Dortmund fan turns down Champions League final ticket for heartwarming reason

A lifelong Borussia Dortmund fan turned down the opportunity to see his team play in the Champions League final on Saturday for reasons that displayed just how loyal members of the Yellow Wall are.

The fan in question was interviewed by popular TikToker, Rob Adcock, who was on the hunt around Wembley for a deserving Borussia Dortmund fan to give a free Champions League final ticket to.

After speaking to several fans, Adcock got chatting to a ticketless German fan who said it would have meant ‘everything' to get inside the stadium.

After talking to him about what Borussia Dortmund meant to him, Adcock offered the fan his ticket only to be left gobsmacked by his response.

The Borussia Dortmund fan said he couldn't possibly accept the offer as he had travelled to London with six friends and that it wouldn't be right to go to the match without all of them by his side.

Second Borussia Dortmund fan accepts free ticket

In a later video, Adcock was able to give his free ticket away to another deserving Borussia Dortmund fan. Unlike the previous fan, this one had travelled across from Germany on his own after he was promised a ticket by someone else only to be let down upon arrival in London.

In the end, perhaps the first fan will feel like he had made the correct decision after Dortmund were defeated 2-0 by Real Madrid. On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund aren't exactly regulars in Champions League finals so the fan who did take the free ticket will now at least have a memory that will last a lifetime.
