While Japan didn’t win any matches in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, their fans won the hearts of many around the globe with their unique post-game ritual.
After every match, the Japanese fans stayed after and cleaned up their section of the stadium. It was a truly heart-warming thing to see. And it looks like one Brazilian club took notice and adopted this practice.

After Atletico-PR beat Vitoria 2-0 on Sunday, their fans stayed after the match to help clean up the Arena da Baixada. The club even gave the supporters 20,000 trash bags to aid their efforts.
We’re hoping this is a practice that catches on at stadiums around the world!
