FOUR FC Troyes fans watched their game against Stade Rennais from a pitch-side hot tub.
The unique experience allowed the supporters to watch on in style, and with maximum comfort in the heated jacuzzi.
Two fans had the best seats in the house as Troyes opened the scoring
They were allowed to drink beer and had deck chairs available to use just yards from one of the corner flags.
One pair of fans had a brilliant view of Ike Ugbo opening the scoring for Troyes in the 1-1 draw, before they were replaced by a different duo.
The hospitality seats drew fans’ attention on social media with many impressed by the opportunity to watch a match from a hot tub.
One supporter wrote: “Best league ever.”

Another added: “It is a very original experience. Very very good idea of the club.”
And a third said: “Where do I sign up?”
Troyes are not unique in offering quirky pitch-side seats, with the Allegiant stadium in Las Vegas selling £5000 tickets for nightclub-style VIP booths by the pitch for Chelsea’s pre-season friendly against Club America in July.
Elsewhere in the US, NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars boast two swimming pools at EverBank Field, with £200 tickets also giving fans access to a free bar and as much food as they can eat.
A few years ago Scottish side Falkirk also gave fans an opportunity to watch games from a pitch-side hot tub.
And Charlton introduced a ‘fan sofa’ in the 2014-15 season which gave Addicks the chance to watch the game pitchside on a comfy suite.
