Footie club suffers deflated imageCentral Station | 19 May 2020
FC Seoul, one of South Korea's top football clubs, is facing an uproar among its fans after being accused of using sex dolls to fill empty seats during a game.
The club apologized yesterday for causing "deep concern" and insisted the mannequins who filled lockdown-emptied seats had "no connection to sex toys."
But some "spectators" at Sunday's game against Gwangju FC, were reported to be wearing T-shirts bearing the logo of SoloS, a sex toy seller. Other mannequins held advertisements for the company.
FC Seoul explained that the advertisements were due to the dolls' provider having previously given them to SoloS for use.
"We are sincerely sorry for causing deep concern to fans," FC Seoul said in a statement.
