Stadium in Berlin Gets Turned Into Giant Living Room with 750 Couches and 700″ TV

 

For the duration of this year’s World Cup, Berlin’s Stadion An der Alten Forsterei (home to FC Union Berlin) will be transformed into a gigantic living room. The field will be outfitted with 750 couches (brought in by fans), complete with side tables and lamps for each along with a massive 700″ TV surrounded by cheesy wallpaper.

Admission is free and the giant living room, known as WM Wohnzimmer will offer a capacity up to 12,000 people. Couch seats are assigned by application/lottery and you can sign up here. Organizers will also cover every couch in the event of rain. Can you think of a better atmosphere to watch matches? It should be quite the scene when Germany plays.
