About Ilves. There's been some serious strife between the club's management and governing board which about two weeks ago led to the whole management (GM staff, marketing people, everyone) to resign from their posts.

The club's going through some really rough times and there's even been talk about the organization bankrupting and having to restart from a lower league.

This tifo was made in support of the struggling club. It's not a literal translation, but I suppose the Swedish slogan used here could be translated loosely as "Don't give up, Ilves".

And what makes this special that this thing was not organized by the fans of Ilves, but the fans of HIFK, the team they played against. I wasn't in the game, but a buddy of mine was, and he apparently sat pretty close to where the tifo went up. One of the plague holders actually said to the Ilves fans sitting behind them, that, "You may not see anything in a while, but I don't think you'll mind. This is for you."

A god damn class A class act. One for the books.
