German Club Signs With Adult Film Actress To Be Shirt Sponsor

In a world where gambling sites and oil companies litter football kits as jersey sponsors, one German club is going for another vice. SV Oberwürzbach, an amateur soccer team in Germany, has a new shirt sponsor that doesn’t like to wear shirts. Or any clothes at all.

The club made the announcement on Facebook by saying, “Welcome to the club of sin!” A couple days later, SV Oberwürzbach won 7-2. Coincidence?

Hell, you’ve probably slightly copped out and pretended to be the legendary Pierluigi Collina for Halloween. It’s fun to record peoples’ indiscretions into a little book and theatrically show them a card, all while lounging comfortably.

But outside of Halloween and off the pitch, it’s never been entirely socially acceptable to dress like a ref.

Chicharito's West Ham Squad Number Has Been Revealed

For the Mexico National Team, he wears number 14. For West Ham, Pedro Obian wears number 14 and Sofiane Feghouli wears number seven, so Chicharito will wear number 17.

At the very least, it gives West Ham a clever little hashtag they can use.
