In the space of 10 days, Zenit have gone from celebrated winning the Russian Premier League to celebrating turning 90 years old. Whilst their celebrations were fairly normal for the title-win, Zenit fans went the extra mile to honour their club’s 90th birthday. Over 2,000 Zenit fans lined the Neva River and simultaneously raised lit flares to create an impressive pyrotechnic landscape.
In a scene reminiscent of Fortuna Dusseldorf’s anniversary celebrations on the Rhine earlier in the season, the coordinated flares of the Zenit fans made the whole of the Neva River look like it was on fire. What a way to celebrate your club’s anniversary!
