Snapshot: Union Berlin’s Stadium Converted Into Giant Living Room With 780 Sofas For Fans To Watch World Cup…

By Chris Wright

As an altogether more homely spin on the “fan park” idea, the home stadium of German second tier side 1. FC Union Berlin has been converted into one big living room ahead of the World Cup, with fans able to watch games from one of 780 sofas.

The flock wallpaper is also a nice touch…

The “Weltmeisterschaft Wohnzimmer” (“World Cup Living Room”) at Union’s Stadion An der Alten Försterei was the brainchild of a chap named Gerald Ponesky, who merely claims he came up with the idea by listening to what football fans wanted.

“It was always something like ‘my home’ or ‘my living room’, and somehow it clicked,” he told local press.

    Love it

  2. Sherman the German says:

    Great club. The new stadium was build with the help of 2.000 Union supporters. In total they worked about 140.000 working hours for free. True passion!

  3. William says:

    The same club that hosts the Christmas carol singing. I’m convinced this is the greatest club in the history of the universe
