English soccer fans are known for their intense devotion to their favorite teams, and one group of dedicated fans showed just how True Blue they are!

Hundreds of Hartlepool United football supporters became a viral sensation after descending on London to support their team  dressed as loveable cartoon characters the Smurfs. The group of true blue fans caused crowds to break out into spontaneous applause and howls of laughter as they hit the Tube in London to travel to where their team was playing the final game of the season against rival team Charlton Athletic.

Video taken of the totally smurfy fans hitting the town immediately went viral on YouTube and other social media sites. 

This isn't the first time fans of the team have gone all out in a show of support. Last year, fans dressed as Oompa Loompa's, Willy Wonka's tiny helpers, from the classic children's film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
