League One side Hartlepool United traveled to London to play their final match of the season and about 170 of the club's fans made the trip dressed as Smurfs. First-place Charlton won the match 3-2, but that didn't stop the Hartlepool supporters from enjoying what's become a tradition of dressing up for their final match each season, as well as any other big matches they feel like watching in a costume. Why? Just for the fun of it.
Here's more photos of the Smurfs...
Previously they've dressed as the character from Where's Wally/Waldo? as well as Morris dancers, Mexicans (that probably wasn't a great idea) and as Oompa Loompas for last season's final-match trip to Charlton. Here's video:
