Super-sized: World Cup to offer double-wide seats to double-wide fans … say, what?

According to several sources

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is set to be the first to offer special seats for obese fans.

FIFA said that to qualify for a ticket, people are required to submit a medical certificate that proves they have a body mass index of 30 or more.

In fact, they’ll get a pricing break.

FIFA said the obese seats will get “Category 3” pricing.

Here’s the official FIFA price list:


Talk about rewarding bad behavior …
