'Ghost' crosses pitch during football game

Footage of a ghostly figure on the pitch during the German Cup final in Berlin has gone viral.
Sightings of apparitions during televised sporting events seem to be on the rise lately with April's sighting of a strange shadow moving across the stands at a Bolivian football match making way for a similar sighting at this week's cup final in Berlin.

The match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday has been somewhat overshadowed by the clip of a ghostly figure running across the pitch. The peculiar extra seems to appear out of nowhere on the left before moving towards the right.

Whether this mysterious shadow represents evidence of the paranormal however is a matter of interpretation, but with more than 7 million viewers logging on to YouTube to look at the footage over the last few days it's difficult to deny that the anomaly has been drawing rather a lot of attention.

So did the people in the match see this?

This is the second time we've had such a "manifestation" at a football match, yes? Well, isn't it obvious? Being the World Cup is on this year, it looks like even those who have passed on are eager to go to see a game! So you think the soccer ball was possessed or something? i fail to see the logic here

I watched it 5 times, freeze framed it 3 times, if I wanted to take the time I would edit the video to copy/paste the shadow on the left, put a reverse or mirror image modifier on that section of video and then play it over the person who comes running into the frame from the right. When the player is running the shadow runs, when the player slows down the shadow slows down. Even more... freeze frame it at every step the shadow and player take, look at the shape of the legs and shoulders of the shadow, then look at the player entering the shot on the right. EXACT MATCH! Furthermore, notice how... [More]

A shadow by any other name is...???

Well I am personally at a loss to offer an explanation for that. I had initially formed the opinion, however wrongly it may be that it was a reflection of some sort on the camera lens from the player who starts to run just as the shadow appears. I must admit having been baffled by it and reading the other posts on the subject that the explanation that made the most sense was the 'camera in front of floodlight' theory, if it isn't a reflective artifact of the running player.

maybe a ghost of a past streaker

I should point out that I am a film maker who has worked for the bbc and oscar winning producer David Puttnam and IMO it's a bog standard reflection. Its only 9:10 and this is already the best reply of the day.

My bet is on digital video artifact. I've seen too many of these, and they never turned up before the advent of digital video. (Just as "orbs" never occurred before digital still photography.)

I think it's a good eye, noticing how the shadow's movements seem to match one of the players. It does seem like that to me. I am also in agreement with some here, the movement of the shadow's doesn't entirely match up to that particular player. Close, but not entirely. I played the video over and over and noticed that the player in the yellow shirt hunched over just after coming into the shot, and the shadow didn't. The yellow shirted player also turned toward his left at the end, and the shadow didn't. Although, I'm not yet thinking this is a ghost, but a reflection. Could it be a remnant fr... [More]
