PSV Eindhoven is taking fan hospitality to the next level.

The team’s home base, Philips Stadium in Eindhoven, Netherlands, will now have a special section in the stands for visually impaired fans.

According to the press release, the section will have room for 20 fans with vision impairments.

The specialized seats will come with headsets that will broadcast game commentary so that fans can enjoy the atmosphere and still be able to follow the action on the pitch.

The go-ahead for the season long project came after a successful trial during the PSV/FC Groningen match last year. If this season is a success, PSV will consider expanding the number of seats.
