Football squad takes to the pitch wearing your names on their shirts

For the first time in Portuguese football history, players took to the pitch for an offiicial match (against V. Guimarães) wearing shirts that belong to the fans. To the surprise of the whole stadium and even the press, the players actually had the names of 18 Club Members on their backs. None of the lucky 18 knew what was about to happen, as they were called down onto the pitch one by one to receive their shirt from each player.
