One football club in Spain's top-flight is taking an unusual step to address falling attendances by introducing a Tinder-style app that allows fans to meet up during matches.

Getafe have one of the smaller fan bases in La Liga. Last season Loz Azulones had the second lowest average attendance in the top flight with 7,753. To put that figure in context, it is a tenth of Barcelona's average gate.

Struggling to fill the seats at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, the club posted a video on their official Facebook page for the Getafinder app "because the mood has never failed us" they insist.

Watch the video posted to welcome amorous supporters to the stadium.
