Wolfsburg fans had a clever, if not timely, way to make a statement.

Midway through the first half of the club’s Bundesliga match at home against Eintracht Frankfurt, Wolfsburg fans rained down Easter eggs onto the pitch, forcing a short delay as players and staff cleared the field of the plastic eggs.

According to reports in Germany, the move was a protest against Monday evening matches for a TV audience. It’s a 3:45 hour drive between Frankfurt and Wolfsburg, and for fans to travel that distance on a weeknight for a match beginning at 8:30 p.m. is difficult.

Historically, German fan groups have organized together to protest certain moves, whether made by the club, DFB, or the Bundesliga.

Its unclear whether this will actually have an effect on getting rid of night games, but it’s a fun way to protest and get attention for your cause regardless.
