World Cup stadiums being built with section for disabled and obese people

Seating for obese people at World Cup

Brazil is starting to build the 2014 World Cup stadiums, and for those who have a larger-than-normal waistline, there's a special section just for them.

The stadiums will have a section of seats for obese people, according to Yahoo! Sports.  The seats will be twice as wide as the standard seat and reinforced for a person who weighs up to 560 pounds.

According to the Brazilian government's World Cup site, they are required to have a special section for obese and disabled people.  The section will make up a little more than two percent of all the seats in the stadium.
