Scary scenes occurred in the Eredivisie this afternoon when a stand holding Vitesse fans collapsed.
The Arnhem outfit beat NEC 1-0 away, with Nikolai Baden Frederiksen scoring the only goal of the game in the first half.
After the game, the Vitesse players went over to celebrate the victory with the travelling supporters at the Stadion Galfort.
But as they were all bouncing up and down in unison, the stand suddenly gave way in an utterly terrifying moment.
Many fans at the front fell downwards, with the players looking concerned.
Still, the supporters did continue their post-match celebrations and wouldn't let the buckling of a stand ruin the scenes.

Thankfully, no one was injured. 🙏
Fortunately nobody was injured but Hubert Bruls, the mayor of Nijmegen, Hubert Bruls, has demanded an investigation be launched.
"I am very shocked by what happened,” Bruls said as per, De Telegraaf.
“Fortunately, as far as is known, no one was injured. I want an investigation into what happened here as soon as possible.”
Vitesse moved up to sixth with the narrow away win and now turn their attentions to a Europa Conference League game against Spurs on Thursday.
