South Korean football club sorry for ‘sex doll’ use in stadium

South Korean football club sorry for ‘sex doll’ use in stadium”

The club issued a statement on Monday apologizing for failing to double-check after the supplier had told them the dolls were not "adult products".

Seoul's match against Gwangju was played without fans, but the home side filled some seats with sex dolls instead - some dressed in the club's colors, while others were holding placards supporting the side.

With followers not permitted to go to video games adhering to the coronavirus pandemic, Seoul made a decision to load the stands with mannequins, just for followers to swiftly understand they remained in truth of the adult range.

The Sports Seoul website said that with so many football fans overseas now following K-League matches, there are concerns the incident will bring global disgrace. "We are very anxious about what happened with the dolls we put in the stands and we're really sorry", the statement added.

"We had them supplied by a company and they informed us that the mannequins are designed for displaying apparel and fashion products".

It added: "Our intention was to do something light-hearted in these hard times". In their match against Gwangju in the South Korean League, all the talk was not on the football, but on the sex dolls in the stands.

The club said it had been the victim of a mix-up, insisting it had checked with the supplier and received assurances that the dolls were not intended for sexual use.

But fans were not convinced.

Another added, "I don't believe the representatives didn't notice the abnormalities".

And a third said, "Didn't know, my ass".

While the 2016 league champions claimed a crucial 1-0 win on the pitch, it's what happened off it that really caught people's attention.

The statement added that the club had confirmed from the start that the mannequins they installed in the stands had no relation to the adult toys, even though they do indeed resemble real humans.
