ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A Blues fan from the Netherlands who attended  attending Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final after other fans raised money for his flight just announced he will be attending Game 6.

The man known as "Dutch Blues Fan" said a business man with the Belden Enterprises read about his story in the press and got him a ticket for Game 6 on Sunday.

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.

Monday, someone saw him walking and handed him $20, saying 'lunch is on me.' 

Bos says he plans to stay in St. Louis until the series ends. If he has any leftover money, he says he will donate it to a St. Louis charity.
