Whether you’ve bought a shirt, hung up a flag or booked the day off work for crucial matches, most of us are doing something to mark the European Championship.
But one football-mad construction worker spent more than 60 hours creating a life-size human table football pitch in his back garden to celebrate Euro 2016
Football fan Iain-Paul Hutton, 39, made a fully laid-out artificial pitch with timber walls and foam patches on six scaffolding bars so 12 eager players can play real-life table football.
It is even enclosed in a stadium Iain-Paul made from scaffolding with international flags surrounding the pitch, which is four metres wide and nine metres long.
After spending nearly two weeks making the life-size human table pitch he unveiled it to impressed family and friends at a party for England’s Euro 2016 clash against Wales this week – which England won 2 – 1.
Next to the stadium at his home in Portchester, near Fareham, Hampshire, is a marquee complete with a 55-inch widescreen television to show the football on.
Also in his garden is a mini-bar and a bouncy castle.
The father-of-two said his family and friends had a great time using his creation, which is big enough for six-a-side games.https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/1299958/a-builder-has-constructed-a-giant-human-table-football-pitch-in-his-back-garden-to-celebrate-euro-2016/
