Fat fans are in box seat
OVERWEIGHT football fans are being offered extra-large seats at next year’s World Cup soccer finals in Russia.
To qualify, fat fans have to provide evidence, such as a doctor’s note, confirming that they are obese. It is thought to be the first time that seats at a major sporting event have been made bigger to cater for obese fans. But supporters hoping to get a larger seat simply for reasons of comfort will be disappointed. Those demanding bigger seats will have to show tournament organisers they have a Body Mass Index of 35 or above.
