The owners of a pub in Germany have installed a TV-screen in the men's toilet so that football fans won't miss a goal during the forthcoming World Cup.
The co-owner and manager of "Ackermanns", a pub in Stuttgart, said that during an important match, every minute was precious.
Barbara Schreiber told AP Television that a lot of money, time and technology had been invested to let their guests enjoy the World Cup matches, but Schreiber stressed they wanted to provide customers with an "all-round" football experience.
Schreiber's guests have welcomed the idea, and one customer said he was hoping other establishments would follow suit.
The reason why there is no TV screen on the women's toilet was a logistic one, explained Schreiber. There was a lack of space and the fact that the women's toilets are "behind closed doors" in single cabins.
But the screen in the toilet isn't the only gadget.
The owners of the pub also decorated the urinals, and placed a miniature goal and ball in each one of them.
Schreiber said she hoped that many people from many different nations will come to her pub to watch the World Cup, like four years ago when the World Cup took place in Japan and Korea.
The "Ackermanns" showed all 64 matches from the World Cup in 2002.
