Kick Streamer Mellstroy Banned After Champions League Final Pitch Invasion

Did a $350,000 Bounty Lead to Fan Chaos at the Champions League?

In a shocking turn of events, the Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid was disrupted by a pitch invasion allegedly orchestrated by Belarusian Kick streamer Mellstroy. The incident, which occurred just 30 seconds into the match at Wembley Stadium, has sparked widespread controversy and led to Mellstroy’s ban from the Kick platform.

Mellstroy’s Audacious Cash Prize Offer

Mellstroy, a streamer with a significant following of over 470,000 on Kick, is accused of offering a staggering $350,000 prize to the first fan who invaded the pitch during the Champions League final.

The 25-year-old, whose real name is Andrey Burin, has gained notoriety for his provocative and sometimes violent streaming content. Despite the serious nature of the allegations, Mellstroy has not yet responded or gone live since the incident, although he did retweet a photo of a fan with Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr..

During the match, three individuals wearing t-shirts emblazoned with ‘Mellstroy’ and advertisements for his Kick Stream stormed the pitch, leading to a brief halt in play. The intruders were quickly apprehended and removed, allowing the game to resume. It was later confirmed that the pitch invaders had been arrested, and a Wembley spokesperson condemned the interruption, reminding spectators of the illegality of entering the field.

Following the incident, Mellstroy was banned from Kick, and his channel became inaccessible. The specifics of the ban, whether it is temporary or permanent, have not been disclosed, leaving questions about Mellstroy’s future on the platform and his intentions regarding the promised cash prize.

The Champions League final pitch invasion has brought to light the influence and impact of streamers like Mellstroy on their audiences. The incident raises questions about the responsibility of influencers and the potential consequences of their actions. As the situation unfolds, the streaming and sporting communities will be watching closely to see how platforms like Kick respond to such provocations and how they will prevent similar incidents in the future.
