A promotion by the FA to give away the last two tickets to the FA Cup at random resulted in the tickets literally dropping from space into the hands of an Arnsenal fan’s grandmother.
According to the Metro, the FA decided to give away the increasingly-pricey tickets out at random by attaching them to a balloon fitted with a GPS and launching them into the sky for them to eventually fall back into the hands of a random citizen.
Metro reported that the balloon-guided tickets reached heights of an incredible 29 kilometers above sea-level (to put that into perspective, the peak of Mount Everest is estimated to be less than 8.9 km above sea-level) before finally dropping back to earth into the village of Broad Oak in Kent.
The tickets were then picked up by a grandmother who, who reportedly decided to give the tickets away to her 19-year-old grandchild who just so happens to be an Arsenal fan.
Arsenal, the defending holders of the Cup, face Aston Villa this coming Saturday in the FA Cup Finals.
