The Russian blogger offered massive cash to one of his followers in the Champions League final.

According to reports, social media influencer Mellstroy promised a £300,000 reward to the first fan to enter the pitch during the UEFA Champions League final.

30 seconds into the major match at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, three pitch invaders—all wearing jerseys with the word MELLSTROY in large text—entered the ground. The contest was halted for a while.

One took selfies with multiple Real Madrid players while Marcel Sabitzer, a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, caught up with another. Security personnel eventually took all three of them out after a little wait.

The vlogger Mellstroy, actual name Andrey Burim, is alleged to have offered a $350,000 (£300,000) reward to the first person to enter the Wembley pitch while sporting a shirt with his name on it.

The 25-year-old, who was born in Belarus, started streaming in 2015 when he graduated from college and started playing well-known games like Minecraft.

Mellstroy has almost 470,000 followers on Kick and broadcasts frequently. In addition, he has a large following on social media sites, with over 3m users following him on Instagram.

All of the pitch invaders were taken into custody, according to a Wembley Stadium spokesman at the Champions League final half-time. They declared:

“It is illegal to enter the field of play at Wembley Stadium and we strongly condemn the actions of those who interrupted the UEFA Champions League Final shortly after kickoff.

“All of the individuals have now been arrested. We will support the relevant authorities to ensure appropriate action is taken.”

Play was halted for around two minutes in total while the pitch invaders were apprehended. TNT Sports commentator Darren Fletcher revealed that Sabitzer intervened to tackle one himself before security staff became involved.
