Straight comedic gold — props to these fans.

To protest Malaga’s lack of spending in this summer’s transfer market, fans of the club hilariously welcomed strangers at an airport like they were new signings.

In the last campaign, the Andalusian side suffered their second relegation in five years and will now be demoted to the third tier of Spanish soccer.

Technically, Malaga has had a busy summer, signing 10 players to their roster. But the problem is every single one of them have been free transfers, which has left supporters in a state of frustration.

So to voice their displeasure, fans decided to greet random strangers at an airport, acting like they were new signings and getting “excited” in absolute hilarity.

Now this is fandom!

I don’t know what to be more impressed by — Malaga fans still rooting for a club in third tier soccer or this outright brilliant way to protest them.

Because I’ll tell you what, there would be no way on Earth I would root for Chelsea if they got promoted down to the third tier of English soccer, no way. Say I’m not a real fan if you want, but my fandom expects English Premier League championships! Champions League titles!

So that’s why I’m saying I have to applaud Malaga supporters for their fandom here.
