World Cup 'will have supersized seats for obese fans'

Obese people will reportedly be able to purchase tickets for double-width seats for the World Cup in Brazil next year.

Obese football fans will reportedly be given their own special seat to watch games in Brazil during the World Cup.

The Castelao stadium in Fortaleza, which will be one of the hosts during the elite tournament next year, are thought to have double-width chairs that can hold 40 stone of weight.

Despite aiming to increase comfort for certain supporters, the seats are expected to be more expensive as sales for June's Confederations Cup are going at a price of £38, while a standard seat is £19, according to The Sun.

The wider seats are thought to have been implemented due to Brazilian disability laws.
