NK Osijek fans gathered to clear the pitch of snow at City Garden Stadium to ensure today’s match against Inter Zaprešić could play, reports Gol.hr on December 16, 2018. 

NK Osijek thanked their loyal supporters who responded to the call to remove the layer of snow from the pitch at City Garden so that yesterday’s delayed match could be played against Inter Zaprešić.

“A joint action to remove the snow cover from the pitch at City Garden has been successfully completed! At 7 am, two hundred fans, club members, young footballers from Osijek, members of the Red Cross Society, association (No) Addiction and other volunteers who readily accepted the invitation from the Osijek Football Club, came together. The field was cleaned for two hours and will be ready to play today’s match that is scheduled for 1 pm,” said the official website of the NK Osijek.

“It is known that our club decided to pay a working hourly wage (25 kuna) on this occasion to everyone who participated in this action, and it is worth pointing out that the Kohorta members have waived their compensation for a humanitarian cause. Namely, they decided to instead help Diana Vranješ, who needs hip surgery. Their example was followed by many other fans and sympathizers of Osijek who also gave up their respective pay for the same goal,” the club added. 

“NK Osijek is grateful to everyone who helped us remove the snow and thus enable conditions for the game between Osijek and Inter. This example, once again, shows the affection of the fans to their favorite club because they were not interested in any compensation, but were motivated by their love of Osijek,” the club concluded. 

The Croatian First League will also see the highly anticipated derby between Dinamo and Hajduk this afternoon at Maksimir Stadium.
