German club Dynamo Dresden has sold out its 32,066-capacity stadium even though fans aren't allowed in for its second-division game against Ingolstadt.

Dynamo sold its last ''ghost ticket'' Saturday evening for a game played behind closed doors because of a stadium ban after rioting at a cup match at Borussia Dortmund.

Fans snapped up tickets in a show of solidarity with the club and gathered to watch the game - a scoreless tie - on big screens outside the stadium Sunday.

Before kickoff, Dynamo said it would continue to ''make space for everyone who doesn't want to go into the stadium.''

Dresden was originally banned from the German Cup next season after the violence in Dortmund on Oct. 25, but the punishment was reduced on appeal.
