Supporters of PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Eredivisie unfurled a GTA V banner prior to their match kicking off against rivals Ajax Amsterdam.

The banner was inspired and designed to look like the typography and style of GTA V (Grand Theft Auto V), the new hit video game that has generated over $1 billion in revenue during the first week of its release.

The PSV Eindhoven GTA V banner reads “Philips Sport Vereniging,” which is the full name of the club. The club was founded in 1913 by employees of Philips, which is still their sponsor. And the word “Vereniging” translates to the English word association.

Full credit to the PSV fans for bringing the art of a video game into a soccer match.

As for the game itself, here are the highlights from PSV versus Ajax:
