REPORTERS at a Leagues Cup match in Utah were left stunned after a RACCOON unexpectedly fell into the press box.
Prior to the clash between MLS side Real Salt Lake and Liga MX outfit Leon at America First Field on Thursday, the wild animal fell through a gap in the ceiling and crashed onto a table.
It then scurried over to a popcorn machine in an attempt to get food, leaving onlookers gobsmacked.
One reporter, named Caleb Turner, filmed the incident unfold and posted the video on Twitter.
The clip prompted a hilarious reaction from some fans, with one person tweeting: "Looks like he just smelled the popcorn and wanted some."
Another questioned: "Ok but did someone get him his popcorn?"

A third joked: "Looks like Rocket has had a rough time since the Guardians of the Galaxy."
While one fan even suggested that Real Salt Lake change their mascot, adding: "Real Salt Lake immediately needs to change their mascot to #rocket the #raccoon and give this raccoon unlimited popcorn please."
After roaming around the press box, the raccoon then ran onto the stadium concourse among thousands of fans.
The match between Real Salt Lake and Leon had been delayed due to torrential rain, so a huge crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of the animal.
