The days of Pitch invaders seem to be at an end with protesters at football games getting increasingly creative.

Borussia Dortmund fans are a key example of this. Unhappy about ticket prices, supporters of the German club interrupted their cup semi-final at Stuttgart by throwing Tennis Balls onto the pitch.

But that isn’t the craziest or most outlandish protest in recent memory. Blackburn fans are in contention for that award after they let a chicken draped in a Blackburn flag onto the pitch during a game against Wigan in protest at the club’s owners Venky’s who ran a chicken meat processing firm in India.

Luis Figo was the recipient of animal-related protest too following his controversial move from Barcelona to Real Madrid in July 2000.

David Beckham got in on the action during his time as an AC Milan player in 2011, wearing a green and gold scarf – the symbol of anti-Glazer protesters at Manchester United as he left the pitch at Old Trafford following a Champions League game.AC Milan's English midfielder David Beck

Blackpool fans forced their final game of the 2014/15 season to be abandoned by staging a sit-in on the pitch in protest at the club’s owners. Supporters entered the playing area en masse after 48 minutes and stayed for an hour, forcing the referee to call off the game against Huddersfield.
