UEFA Champions League - NK Maribor
Slovenia's most successful side NK Maribor have a very interesting history of goal nets.
They love their stanchions soooo much that soon after Slovenian independence in the early 90's, they eschewed convention and suspended their nets by, not 2, but 3 stanchions.
Later, when obviously instructed they needed box nets to compete in Europe, Maribor couldn't bear to give up their stanchions so basically draped the box nets over the (now only 2) stanchions.
