  • Football South Korean club FC Seoul apologises after filling empty seats with mannequin sex dolls

The K League side used a variety of mannequins to partially fill the empty seats in their home ground, Seoul World Cup Stadium, for their first home match of the season yesterday.

The coronavirus pandemic has chewed up the lovely game and spat out a version we're not familiar with.

The Sports Seoul website said that with so many football fans overseas now following K-League matches, there are concerns the incident will bring worldwide disgrace.

FC Seoul insisted the mannequins - used in the absence of fans, who are banned because of the coronavirus - had "no connection to sex toys".

But when providing its products for the stadium, Dalkom reused some of the mannequins it previously supplied to another company, which manages female video jockeys, after which some of the sex dolls were reportedly modeled, FC Seoul said.

But some of the artificial spectators, deployed for Sunday's game against Gwangju FC, wore T-shirts with the logo of SoloS, a sex toy seller.

Seoul said their perceived faux pas, which was pointed out by several users on social media - with the mannequins supposedly holding up advertising signs for adult streaming sites, was due to a mix-up with the manufacturer.

Fans weren't exactly convinced by the apology or excuse.

"We tried to make sure the mannequins weren't sex dolls multiple times", the club added in a statement posted on Instagram. One took to social media saying, "Even if on paper, it is said to be non-sexual, they should have realised while installing the mannequins".

"In that process, no one thought to question the visuals of these mannequins?", the user persisted, while the Sports Seoul website stressed the incident could have consequences for the club's reputation on the global sporting arena.

With football now being played behind closed doors, clubs are trying to find new ways to fill the empty seats in their stadiums.
