Tens of thousands of fans looked on in fear as a man's parachute jump went wrong at an American Football match on Saturday.

The Navy Seal, who was meant to land in the middle of the field, was seen missing his mark by about 60 metres before crashing into the wall of one of the stands.

The jumper was just metres away from crashing into the first few rows of full seats at LaVell Edwards Stadium, Utah.

In one of the video clips, the parachutist can be heard slamming into the wall.

It's unclear if he sustained any injuries from the rough landing.

It's not the first time halftime entertainment has gone wrong at sporting event. In 2012 a parachute stunt went horribly wrong at a Warriors game at Eden Park.

One of the six skydivers mistimed his landing and went crashing into the ground where he lay prone on the turf for several minutes before St John staff attended to the man.

He suffered a broken thigh and was rushed to hospital.
