Fans can now enjoy Grasshopper Zurich games from pitchside jacuzzi

Fans of Swiss Super League club Grasshopper Zurich can now watch their side play from the comfort of a pitchside hot-tub as part of a VIP matchday package laid on club sponsors Duravit.

Indeed, a couple of plucky Speedo-clad Grasshopper fans, Bruno and Dominic, braved the freezing temperatures at the Letzigrund Stadium last weekend before climbing into the 36 degree bubble bath situated at the side of the pitch to take in their side's 3-1 win over St. Gallen.

Bruno and Dominic even got a touchline high-five from Grasshopper captain Vero Salatic after the midfielder charged over to the jacuzzi to celebrate having scored on his return from a month-long injury lay-off.

Looks great, though Swiss football is in the grips of a vicious pine marten epidimic at the moment, so we'd advise the wearing of protective clothing if you do happen to fancy a dip.
