Last weekend, photos of German football fans holding "refugees welcome" were seen and shared by football fans across the world.
Now, after the fan-led movement last week, Germany's biggest club, Bayern Munich, has announced that it will work with the German government to help refugees in Munich and Bavaria.
The club is taking the unprecedented step of holding training sessions for younger refugees. Children and teenagers will also receive German lessons from the club, and will be offered food and clothes.
The club said in a statement:
Germany is currently experiencing its greatest influx of refugees for many decades. This presents a special challenge to the state and society. FC Bayern München will play an active part in meeting the challenge and, working closely with the city of Munich and state of Bavaria, contribute financial, material and practical help.
A friendly match has also been organised to raise €1 million in charity for refugees who have made the journey to Germany.
Despite top tier European football clubs taking a break this weekend in order for international football fixtures to be fulfilled, fans in the UK are signalling their intention to take Germany's lead.
And in Scotland, Celtic have announced their own plans to help refugees.
Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said in a statement:
Having seen the effects of this humanitarian crisis unfold in recent days, we felt as a club we should help in any way we can.
Celtic was established as a football club to help people in need and this ethos remains a fundamental part of our club almost 130 years after our formation. None of us can understand the true horrors of this situation but as a club we wanted to show our support for those affected.
