Benfica won the Portuguese cup final with a 2-1 win over Vitoria Guimaraes over the weekend. But while the Portuguese giants adding another trophy to their cabinet is somewhat noteworthy, the only thing from the game anyone seems to be talking about is what happened beforehand.
Watch as some guy wearing a fancy costume on a flying drone comes into the stadium to deliver the match ball. It’s… out there.
The very best part of the video is the reaction of the players, who seemingly have no idea what to think about what they’ve just seen. So what was that thing anyways? Was it actually a drone, because I thought those were supposed to operate without people? Was it some kind of flying surfboard? A hoverboard that actually… hovers? Whatever it is, I look forward to the first cup final where all the players get to use them and not just the guy delivering the match ball.
