As the Covid-19 pandemic affects everyone, especially sporting events like the Tokyo Olympics and to football leagues all over the world, venues such as stadiums are being repurposed for other things such as field hospitals, testing centres and even morgues.

Well, we can’t blame them for repurposing stadiums, as there is no other facility that is as big and as spacious as a stadium.

One man in Indonesia, however, took things to the next level, when he converted an Indonesian professional football stadium in Makassar, Indonesia into his personal garden complete with vegetables enough to feed his family for weeks.

To the horror of the PSM Makassar football team, the stadium grounds at Stadium Mattoanging has been turned into a bona fide vegetable farm and is also full of weeds where remnants of a football pitch is no longer there.

The unnamed farmer responsible for the illegal farming was indeed seen proud of his handiwork.

Commenting on the incident, Stadium Secretary Muhlis Mallajareng said that he knew nothing of the crops currently planted at the stadium.

He adds that the football club is the current owner of the stadium, as it is currently still under contract.

With the league’s commencement still under lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, surely the owners are ok with this farmer making a little extra money when no other form of work is available, right?
