A Denizlispor fan who was banned from the stadium for 12 months, hired a crane out to watch his side play this weekend! ?? pic.twitter.com/0rZRflDP1N
A very dedicated soccer fan has gone viral after attempting to watch his favorite team play from a crane.
The fan of the Turkish team Denizlispor had been banned from the club’s stadium for a year, but he found a way around the rules so that he could watch them play live against Gaziantepspor over the weekend.
The man rented a crane to lift him above the gates of the stadium so that he could see the field while still, technically, being outside of the venue.
Although his idea was both extreme and brilliant, it was short-lived as police eventually forced the crane off the property, but not before several photos were snapped of the man inside the crane, leading to his current viral fame.
Alas, perhaps he was the good luck charm the team needed, considering they won the match in a 5-0 victory.
Unfortunately, the man will have to settle for watching games on television from now on as his ban is still in effect, and he likely won't be able to get away with another stunt like this one.
In the meantime, though, he can enjoy the popularity he's gained as a result of his drastic antics.
Hope his side won!!!! ??????— MAVROPANOS (@kipngeno_xiii) April 28, 2018

This guy needs to be unbanned and granted a lifetime pass immediately. Forget all that he had done... screw it.— BTCKYLE **NOT GIVING AWAY ETH** (@BTCKYLE) April 30, 2018
After this he deserves to have his ban lifted ?? ??— iron ZADDY (@lucky2b_phenom) April 30, 2018
