A football stadium in Berlin has been converted into the World's largest living room for the duration of the World Cup and it looks amazing.

Union Berlin's stadium's pitch has been filled with 750 sofas, which will make for quite an experience on matchday and was packed for last night's World Cup opener between Brazil and Croatia.

The couches also include covers in case it rains during the games.

Each couch has a table and lamp facing a giant TV screen located in one of the stands.
