Both champions AA Gent (East Flanders) and RC Genk of Limburg province struck a deal with funeral service provider Dela, which designed a coffin in the right colours. The stadiums of both clubs will also boast a special wall mentioning the names of fans that died.
"Real fans see their favourite club as a second home, their life, their leisure. (...) Fan from birth to death: it's often a last wish to be remembered in the stadium after death", a statement released by AA Gent said.
KRC Genk also refer to the wall of remembrance: "It will allow every fan to be present at home games, while a virtual wall will give other supporters the chance to express their sympathy or condolences and to share good memories."
