Here’s an image of the special World Cup seats for obese fans

February 6th, 2014

As we reported almost a year ago, all 12 stadiums hosting World Cup matches in Brazil this summer are required to offer seats for fans struggling with obesity (at least 1% of the stadium’s capacity, according to Brazilian law). It is the first World Cup to hold this requirement.

And on Thursday, Bloomberg news reporter Tariq Panja gave us hard proof this is in fact a real thing. The picture of the seat above was taken at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

According to Panja, obese fans will also be entitled to a 50 percent discount on match tickets. Fifty! Can you believe that? Almost encourages you to gain a few pounds, no? Fans from around the world can apply for these seats and the discount, under one condition: they must have a body mass index of 30 or higher, and be able to prove it with a note from their doctor.

You know who’s very happy about this? This guy:
