ADO Den Haag fans shower children from Rotterdam hospital with cuddly toys at Feyenoord

Whenever you hear of fans throwing objects at opposing supporters, you immediately fear the worst. However, this couldn’t have been further from the truth during Sunday’s Eredivisie match between Feyenoord and Den Haag at De Kuip.

Den Haag’s fans brought cuddly toys to the match and threw hundreds of them to sick children who were attending the game from Rotterdam’s Sophia Children’s Hospital.

Den Haag and Rotterdam are less than 30 kilometres apart, meaning the two clubs are local rivals, so the fact the travelling fans went out of their way to ensure the poorly children had a day to remember really was a wonderful and heartfelt gesture.

And to make the day even better, the home side continued their fine start to the season with their fifth consecutive win. Dirk Kuyt opened the scoring for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team as they ran out 3-1 winners.
