In a moving gesture, the Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Bengaluru FC on Wednesday offered a 33-week pregnant fan a seat in the 'owner's box'. The pregnant lady had tweeted to the club requesting them to allow her to carry hot water in a reusable bottle during the match.
"Hello @bengalurufc! Is there any possibility that I could permission to carry some hot water from home in a reusable bottle?? I’m currently 33 weeks pregnant & I need to stay hydrated also take my medication. It was terribly inconvenient when I came to watch previous matches!!" the fan wrote on Twitter.
While the passion of the pregnant lady was applauded by several users, what was even delightful was the response from Bengaluru FC. The club decided to make her viewing experience even more comfortable by offering her accommodation in the owner's box.
"Hey, Meghana. We love the fact that you're introducing your little one to the Fortress already! We'd be more than happy to accommodate you in the Owner's Box for Saturday's game, where there's hot water and more. This one's on us," the club wrote her back.
