Fans of the Dutch soccer team Feyenoord Rotterdam paid their respects to the victims aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 with a massive stadium display and a moment of silence before the team’s friendly game against Spain’s Real Sociedad Wednesday.

The display, which appeared to stretch longer than the width of the field — typically 70 to 80 yards — included the names of each of the victims. In the center of the display was an image of a father and child holding hands and facing the Feyenoord soccer stadium, with “MH17″ written above.

Pro-Russia rebels in Ukraine reportedly used a surface-to-air missile to shoot down the Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine last week.

One-hundred ninety three of the 298 victims were Dutch citizens. The bodies of some of the victims arrived in the Netherlands Wednesday.
