Football resumed May 8 without supporters in South Korea - Yonhap News / Newscom / SIPA

First controversy related to the cardboard supporters used by the clubs to artificially bypass the closed doors imposed by the coronavirus health crisis, and it comes straight from South Korea.

FC Seoul had to apologize after being accused of placing sex dolls in its stadium. "We are sincerely sorry to have made our supporters uncomfortable," said FC Seoul in a statement. "We made sure from the start that they had nothing to do with sex toys," said the club.

Inappropriate advertising

But several of these dolls, placed in the stadium stands for the closed-door championship game against Gwangju on Sunday (won 1-0), were dressed in T-shirts bearing the logo of a manufacturer of sexual articles. And other dolls held posters advertising the company and its products ...

The dolls, mainly representing women, wore a protective mask and were separated from each other according to the rules of distancing aimed at limiting the spread of Covid-19. According to the club, the doll's supplier had previously made them available to the company distributing sex toys, which would explain the inappropriate advertisements.
