PSV Eindhoven is taking fan hospitality to the next level.

The team’s home base, Philips Stadium, will now have a special section in the stands for visually impaired fans.

According to the press release, the section will have room for 20 fans with vision impairments.

The specialized seats will come with headsets that will broadcast game commentary so that fans can enjoy the atmosphere and still be able to follow the action on the pitch.

Th go-ahead for the season long project came after a successful trial during the PSV/FC Groningen match last year. If this season is a success, PSV will consider expanding the number of seats.

Ajax wins trophy, promptly knocks it over


Ajax defeated Willem II 5-0 to secure the Eredivisie title for the third year in a row and were rewarded with a tremendous trophy presentation. Still full of adrenaline and excitement, Ajax defender Daley Blind got a little carried away during the presentation and knocked the trophy to the ground.

Thankfully, the trophy is still intact, so no harm no foul. Fast forward to the :28 mark to see Blind’s blunder.
