Feyenoord Fans flood the Coolsingel!

On Monday 15 May 2023, tens of thousands of Feyenoord fans packed the Coolsingel in front of Rotterdam city hall to celebrate the team’s 16th ‘Eredivisie’ title.

Fans from around the whole country came to celebrate and see the trophy lifted by the football (soccer) team. Coming together to celebrate, chant and show local pride, the entire street was occupied with scarves, red and green flares, red-white confetti and waving Feyenoord flags.

West 8 designed the Revitalisation of the Coolsingel together with Gemeente Rotterdam, to both enhance the public realm and embed the necessary infrastructure to accommodate moments of mass celebration, from the Rotterdam Marathon to the Summer Carnival. Construction work began on the Coolsingel in 2018 with the hope that the street would be host to the next ‘Eredivisie’ title of the club and was successfully opened in 2021.
