A Turkish soccer fan who was banned from entering his team's stadium rented a crane so that he would still be able to watch Denizlispor play in the Turkish Cup.

Oh the lengths fans will go to watch their favorite team play.

Last year, someone spent $133,000 for two tickets to Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Sometimes, people pay money on items other than tickets so they can watch the action.

For example, a soccer fan in Turkey identified as "Yuamuk Ali," found a way around a 12-month stadium ban so he could see his favorite team, Denizlispor, play in the Turkish Cup, according to Sky Sports. He didn't try to sneak into the stadium over the weekend.

Instead, he rented a crane and parked it outside the stadium and got a bird's-eye view of the game.

Take a look:
