Second placed Ajax, who hosted Cambuur at their Amsterdam ArenA in the Eredivisie, came up with the heartwarming move as a pre-match gesture.
The players emerged from the dressing room to greet their mums before walking out of the tunnel alongside them.
It was an idea which was warmly received by fans of the club with many of the mums clearly moved by the occasion.
