The oldest fan of Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg has passed away at the age of 103, the club announced Monday.

Regina Donde visited her first match in 1929 when the club was little more than an assembly of metal plant workers, and a full 11 years before the current name of Zenit was assumed.

“On Friday, September the seventh, the oldest supporter ... Regina Samuilovna Donde, has died in the 104th year of life,” the Russian side wrote on Twitter.

She had supported Zenit in their various post-revolution incarnations for 83 years; the last match she visited a 1-1 draw against Lokomotiv Moscow in May 2011.
