Viktoria Plzen install new dugouts shaped like giants cans of beer

Viktoria Plzen install new dugouts shaped like giants cans of beer
The new dugouts are perfect for a club based in the town that gave pilsner lager it's name.

Ordinarily speaking, the installation of new dugouts at a football stadium probably wouldn't be worth mentioning.

However, the new dugouts installed at Viktoria Plzen's stadium are no ordinary dugouts.

In fact, they happen to be shaped like enormous cans of beer and they are utterly glorious.

The custom made 14-seat shelters are a result of the Czech club's new commercial partnership with nearby brewery Gambrinus, with each bench styled to look like a can of their premium pilsner.

"This is a joint project and I am very glad that the realisation has succeeded," said Plzen general manager Adolf Sadek.

"These seats are quite unique and I dare to say that there is no other club with them."

We think that's a fairly safe assumption!
