Flawless, weird and amazing – these are the three words that will come to your mind when you see what we are talking about. We bet you know that match balls are delivered in wacky ways, but the one we saw recently is something different.
For the Taca de Portuguese Cup Final on Sunday, a man literally surfed a drone across the pitch at around 50 feet into the air to give the referee the ball. Yes, you read it right. He landed and handed over the ball before the game got underway.
Incredible stuff at the Portuguese Cup Final…😂😂😂

So, was this a glimpse of the future?
Thanks to goals from Eduardo Salvio and Raul Jimenez, Benfica beat Vitoria Guimaraes 2-1 to clinch the Taca de Portugal.
