20,000 tickets were handed out for the Circus Cup, a gala match between legends of AA Gent and Standard in the Ghelamco Arena with Ronaldinho as special guest.
The Brazilian is a banner of Circus, the lender of both clubs.
Tonight he strolled on the Ghent turf with Ghent icons such as Frédéric Herpoel, Nana Asare, Marko Suler, Elimane Coulibaly, Khalilou Fadiga, Mido, Gunther Schepens and Danijel Milicevic.
Ronaldinho also played a half at Standard, which counted on Jonathan Legear, Jelle Van Damme, Mehdi Carcela (discharged with an injury), Mbo Mpenza, Oguchi Onyewu and Ali Lukunku.
The Ghelamco Arena is never completely filled at the home matches of AA Gent, but that was not the case today either.
The excessive interest caused a huge traffic jam with traffic jams lasting more than an hour.
