The Footie Fan’s Ultimate Dream?
Brazil football club is to open a cemetery for its dedicated fans – known as the Corinthians. Apparently there is already lots of interest and reservations are already coming in for the 70,000 plots that will be available.…
I thought this enterprising move by a football club was unusual – but it isn’t! There are already cemeteries attached to European Football Clubs, including Hamburg. Who knew?! Not me!
As far as I know, there are none so far in UK, but there are plenty of requests at all clubs for scattering of ashes on the pitch, behind the goalposts, etc. Whilst this is permissible in UK and therefore up to clubs to agree or not; in many other countries, scattering of ashes is not allowed in law.
