A pitch invasion halted the opening minutes of the Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid. Mellstroy, a social media influencer, reportedly offered his followers a cash prize to run onto the pitch at Wembley Stadium.

Numerous people wearing white t-shirts stormed the European stage. The shirts bore the name “MELLSTROY” on the front. Reportedly, the internet star offered $350,000 as part of the incident. This is for the first person to get onto the Wembley turf. Mellstroy broadcasts on Kick, a streaming platform. He has 470,700 followers here.
The 25-year-old has also three million followers on Instagram, and 1.8 million followers on Tiktok. He was born in 1998, in Gomel, Belarus. Mellstroy began streaming on YouTube in 2015, playing Minecraft, CS:GO, Dota 2, and other popular games.
Mellstroy’s real name is Andrey Burim. He eventually decided to start streaming his day-to-day activities and betting on Kick. The confirmation of the $350,000 prize reports is still pending.
Nonetheless, the presence of multiple pitch invaders bearing the streamer’s name on their clothing to soon after kick-off would suggest an element of premeditation on the part of the pitch invader. After a brief pause in play, the stage was cleared, and the Champions League resumed.
Rio Ferdinand explained ahead of the game why he’d love to see Jadon Sancho waltz away triumphant. The former Manchester United defender said to Daily Mail that he doesn’t really care about Dortmund, he doesn’t case who wins this, really, if he’s honest.
But for someone like Jadon, it’d be great for young people to see people that can go through a little bit of downturn in confidence. Have to change environment, club, etc, be vilified at times, be on the receiving end of bit criticism, but then come out the other end and produce some performances.
