Feyenoord beat Excelsior 3-0 at De Kuip but the main talking point was the heartwarming gesture from the traveling away fans.
When Dutch football team Feyenoord invited patients from Rotterdam’s Sophia Children’s Hospital and their families to their Eredivisie match against Excelsior on Sunday they got even more than they bargained for.
The visiting Excelsior supporters heard of the gesture from their rivals, so decided to try and make the children’s day extra special by bringing a collection of soft toys to give to the youngsters.
After finding out that the children were sat a tier below them at the De Kuip stadium, the supporters rained toys upon them from a height, leaving the area around the pitch covered in everything from aardvarks to zebras.
Check out the superb moment below

It’s not the first time this has happened in the Netherlands.
Ado Den Haag showered children with bears back in 2016. Again to Feyenoord fans.
