Controversy ensued as South Korean side, Fc Seoul made use of s*x dolls in place of fans during their weekend fixture with the return of competitive football.
Competitive football is gradually gaining momentum over Coronavirus pandemic, but clubs are already feeling the effects of not being able to play in front of fans.
South Korean side, Fc Seoul, in a bid to improvise, got it all wrong as they made use of s*x dolls to pose as fans over the weekend.
Fans of Seoul took to instagram to register their displeasure over seeing s*x dolls dressed in the club’s jersey, with placards, posing as fans in their game against Gwangju FC.
According to TheTelegraph, a fan of Seoul said it was obvious they were s*x dolls and that it had undermined club’s efforts “to show games for all the family”.
The K-league 1 side claimed it to be an honest mistake in their apology, saying that suppliers assured they were normal mannequins, in an official statement.
We wanted to bring some fun elements to the no-fans game and give the message that we can overcome this difficult period
We had confirmed that the mannequins were made as if they were real but had nothing to do with adult products.
But the problem was we failed to make detailed checks, which is our fault without a doubt. – The Fc Seoul’s statement read.
The importance of fans in world football can never be underestimated, but clubs shouldn’t have to go an extra mile in bizarre fashion to checkmate the bane.
