Woman Comes Home To Find Her Fella Has Turned Living Room Into Football Pitch

There's something about the World Cup, isn't there? It turns non-football fans into fans, and those who already love the beautiful game... well, it makes them act a little strangely.

No one knows this more than Krissy Flowers, who arrived home from a long day at work only to find her other half Kris Hancock had taken every scrap of furniture out of their living room and created this:

Pretty impressive, I think you'll agree; but Krissy did not agree.

"I couldn't believe it when I walked in and saw this," she told LADbible. "I shouted, 'Where the fuck is my sofa?' He'd actually piled up all the furniture in one of the bedrooms.

"Kris thought it would be a good surprise. He spent £100 ($132) on astro-turf and some goal posts. He's done some silly stuff in this past, but he somehow managed to keep this one quiet so it was a total shock."

That's a fair amount of dedication, and despite Krissy's hesitations, the room seems to be pretty popular with their pals.

She said: "Some of my friends and family have seen it, I sent some photos on WhatsApp. People have laughed and said 'oh it's ace', but pretty much everyone agrees that they wouldn't want the surprise of coming home to this!"

Well, yeah. Fair point, well made.

Krissy isn't even a football fan, although she will be throwing her support behind England and Russia - as they are 'both her countries' - so, it'd make for an interesting night if England end up playing Russia, wouldn't it?


Proving herself to be a good sport, Krissy has allowed Kris to keep the living room this way until the end of the World Cup, s she's much more understanding than me.

Kris isn't the only one to let World Cup fever go right to his head - a pub landlord forked out £5,000 ($6,600) so his regulars can watch all the action from a 150-seat grandstand.

The massive structure took Paul Sandford, landlord at the Railway Tavern in Dareham, two weeks to build, but he reckons it's all worth it to see how it brings everyone together.

"It is just a big party," Paul said. "The atmosphere is great. We used it first time last week and it was really good.

"When the Portugal match was playing we had a load of Portuguese people coming to support.

"It was really good, we have a really big Portuguese community here so it was nice - the stand brought everyone together."

Lovely stuff.
