The Soccer Surfer: Drone Delivers Match Ball


The craziest thing in the Portuguese Cup Final happened before a ball was even kicked!

In one of the most bizarre scenes ever seen at a football game, the match ball was delivered to the referee by a man on a drone.

The surfer rode the spider-like drone around 70 meters in driving rain before landing by the match official near the halfway line and handing the ball over.

Following the ball’s arrival, Benfica proceeded to beat Vitoria Guimaraes 2-1. Two early second half goals from Raul Jimenez and Eduardo Salvio helped seal the tie.

Manchester City target Ederson Moraes played all 90 minutes.
