Russian Women’s Premier League soccer champions will play in bikinis to sell tickets

In case you didn’t know, three-time Russian Women’s Premier League champion FC Rossiyanka is having financial difficulties. But unlike the Dodgers, they have vowed to make their next payroll, even if it means playing their next match in bikinis. Oh, now you’re interested in women’s soccer all of a sudden?

The team’s web site explains this, I think. From the Google translator:

I think that our soccer players are beautiful and attractive woman, brilliantly holding the ball, no way inferior to the well-known tennis players and gymnasts, – says Sergey Zhuravlev. – Unfortunately, at this point our sport is not enough due attention from the sports officials and government programs to support the sport. Women’s football is not developing as fast as in Europe.

With this project we want to draw attention to women’s soccer, to increase his popularity among the male population. Necessary to break the stereotype of women’s football as a faint, not a spectacular sport. The main thing is that our athletes understand and support our ideas. Together we will achieve our goals, because women’s football in Russia is doomed to success!

It should be noted that last year the football club “Russian woman” and similar organized shooting RZHFL players of the club and the Russian team. Then photos of the best football players of Russia in the form of glamorous ladies and gentle angels caused a real sensation

Doomed to success indeed!
