(Enkele dagen later op 6 mei 1970 legt Feyenoord als eerste Nederlandse voetbalclub beslag op de Europa Cup I. In het San Siro-stadion in Milaan wint de Rotterdamse club in de finale met 2-1 van Celtic door doelpunten van verdediger Rinus Israel en de Zweedse aanvaller Ove Kindvall. Meer dan 20.000 Feyenoord-supporters en minstens evenveel Schotse fans, hebben een plekje weten te bemachtigen in het met 53.000 toeschouwers volledig gevulde stadion.

In Nederland worden de helden van Milaan de volgende dag groots onthaald. Het vliegtuig met Feyenoord aan boord zou op Zestienhoven landen, maar daar hebben zich duizenden supporters verzameld. Het vliegveld is veranderd in een zee van in rood-witte clubkleuren gehulde Feyenoord-fans. Er wordt daarom besloten uit te wijken naar Schiphol. Als dat bekend wordt, stroomt het vliegveld leeg en haast de massa zich naar Rotterdam of naar de rijksweg in de hoop een glimp van de teambus op te vangen. Het vliegtuig maakt daarop rechtsomkeer en landt alsnog op Zestienhoven. Deels via een sluipweg wordt de teambus naar het stadhuis van Rotterdam geloodst. Naar de achteringang welteverstaan, want voor het gebouw hebben zich honderdduizenden supporters verzameld, een ongekende mensenmassa, wachtend op het moment dat het team op het balkon zou verschijnen. Uiteraard worden ze niet teleurgesteld. Na de officiële ontvangst door de burgemeester van Rotterdam, betreedt het team het balkon om de beker onder een daverend gejuich aan de verzamelde massa te tonen.)
