He was in attendance for Game 4 after fans worked to raise money so he could fly over from Amsterdam.
The man said he’s been a Blues fan since 1994 and often stays up in the middle of the night to watch the games.
Other fans started a GoFundme to get the fan, Gerard Bos, from Amsterdam to St. Louis for Game 4. He said wants to thank everyone from the bottom of his heart for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
"I know how special this is because I realize that there are lots of people here in this city who've never been to a Stanley Cup Final game, obviously waited their whole life for it and then I get to go because of the people here," he said.
