Dutch Soccer Fans Cheer So Much The Stands Collapse, But They Don’t Care
After over a year without having fans in the stadium, people are more excited than ever to watch their favorite teams pummel the other guys. This has led to some rowdy stadiums, like the Virginia Tech fans who were cheering and jumping so much, it registered on seismograph.
Fans at a Dutch soccer game were cheering on their team, Vitesse Arnhem, when they collapsed the stands inside the stadium.
Getting hyped up with the team leading them, the fans were jumping up and down in unison to celebrate Vitesse winning 1-0 over NEC Nijmegen when the bleachers broke. The fans dropped down a few feet, but continued to cheer as if nothing happened.
Hubert Bruls, mayor of Nijmegen (where the game was played), has called for an immediate investigation into the incident.
"Fortunately, as far as is known, nobody was injured," Bruls told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. "I want an investigation into what happened here as soon as possible."
