Russian Women’s Soccer Team To Play In Bikinis To Sell Tickets

http://bustedcoverage.com/2011/06/30/russian-womens-soccer-team-promises-bikinis-in-next-match-to-fill-seats-photos/





While the women’s World Cup trudges along in Germany with barely a pulse in the United States, a Russian soccer club has taken the extra step to guarantee a great turnout for its next match. FC Rossiyanka, 3-time Russian Women’s Premier League champions, are so cash strapped that they’ve promised to play their next match in bikinis to put men in the seats. Extreme? To Busted Coverage? No way. To purists? Of course.

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. Throughout the world, the sport is on the first cast and is growing rapidly, largely thanks to government support and assistance to national associations. 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.
According to head coach Tatiana Egorova, the experience contributes to the promotion of women’s football, and the athletes themselves are starting to feel more confident.

7. True, this is about the only way I'd find soccer interesting.
Watching people run around to the point of exhaustion is rarely fun. The lack of a sports bra is what women's soccer has been waiting for since its inception.

6. Sounds like a great idea, but I think they should put some shoes on. Someone's going to get hurt.

11. I hope you know Blatter actually suggested that women wear more
skimpy clothing to attract support.
