A takeaway delivery company sent a driver to dispatch the match ball to the game’s officials ahead of a clash in the Ecuadorian top league.

Emelec drew 1-1 at Barcelona’s Estadio Monumental Banco Pichincha in the country’s Liga Pro on Saturday.

Prior to kick off, with just the referee and his assistants on the pitch, the ball was delivered to them in an insulated food backpack.

The employee of the company approached the group in full company uniform before handing the ball to them as if it was a take out.
