While some football fans are known for loud and rowdy behaviour in the stands, these Dutch fans are here to win our hearts with some seriously cute stadium behaviour.

Supporters attending the Feyenoord vs. Excelsior match in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, gave a group of young visitors from a children’s hospital a special treat on Sunday.

Here’s a video of the moment fans in the top level of the stands rained down stuffed toys onto the children below, who were visiting from Erasmus MC-Sophia Children’s Hospital.

A spokesperson for Feyenoord told Mashable that kids from the Sophia Children’s Hospital visit every year. This is the second time that visiting and local fans have chosen to give the kids the treat of showering them with cuddly toys.

The event got a lot of attention on social media, with people praising the fans for the initiative.

“Who knows, maybe this is the start of a tradition,” said Vermulst.
