Vicente Fernández fans mourned together at a big soccer game in Mexico on Sunday … with thousands of supporters singing and cheering throughout the venue.
The powerful moment went down at the Jalisco Stadium … as Atlas and León players joined together at midfield to celebrate the life and legacy of Fernández.
Fans in attendance stood in solidarity with one another … clapping for more than a minute straight as fireworks shot to the sky.
Music was played as a young boy dressed in all white walked onto the field to release a white balloon into the sky.
That wasn’t all … a message was projected on the screens at the stadium reading “Don Vicente Fernández 1940-2021.”
Fernández’s death has affected people not just in the music world, but the sports world as well … and this tribute was clearly special to all in attendance.
He is survived by his wife, María del Refugio Abarca Villasenor, and their four kids — Vicente Jr., Gerardo, Alejandro, and Alejandra.
