Excelsior fans throw cuddly toys to kids during match
Excelsior supporters threw hundreds of cuddly toys before and during the match at Feyenoord on Sunday (19th August). It was a present to children from Rotterdam's Sophia Children's Hospital who were watching the game in the stand below.
Feyenoord had invited patients from Rotterdam's Sophia Children's Hospital and their families to attend the Eredivisie clash for free. And the kids got a memento to take away from their special day after the visiting fans launched hundreds of gifts from the top tier of De Kuip.
Stuffed bears, lions, penguins and plenty more were left strewn around the stands and on the area in front of the pitch, with stewards helping to ensure they did not go to waste. The incredible gesture was caught on camera by Fox Sports, while Feyenoord took to Twitter to thank the visiting supporters for their efforts.
It is not the first time a shower of cuddly toys has been seen at top-flight match in Holland, with ADO Den Haag fans having orchestrated a similar show of support during a game against Feyenoord two years ago.
