Terminally Ill Dutch Soccer Fan Walks On Field To Rousing Ovation, Three Days Before Dying


Dying Feyenoord Fan

Rooie Marck was a supporter of Dutch football club Feyenoord, and he was terminally ill. His last wish was to see his favorite team play one last time. He got a chance to walk on the pitch at De Kuip Stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and the crowd reception was surreal.

Things get heavy at the 3:43 mark.

Sadly, Marck died three days later, at 54 years old.
