Brothels to sponsor Greek football team
Nikolas Giakoumidis - The Associated Press photoVoukefalas, an amateur league football team in Greece, has signed a sponsorship agreement with two brothels, Sports illustrated reported.
The financial crisis in Greece has hit the sports sector hard, obliging football teams to search for new sponsors. Thus, two brothels, Villa Erotica and Soula's House of History, have stepped in to sponsor Voukefalas on condition of changing the team's kit color to pink.
Even though the prostitution is legal according to Greek laws, the Greek Amateur Football Federation found the sponsorship agreement inappropriate for sports and prohibited the pink shirts provided by the two sponsors.
Following a dismal run of four defeats in the league, one of the brothels has vowed for a special night for the members of the team if they win the next match.
