Voukefala & Paleopyrgo: Greek Sponsorship Ingenuity At Its Finest

UPDATE: Here’s a few Voukefalas players in their ‘Villa Erotica’ sponsored kits – just for funsies.

In more imaginative and original news, the economic crisis in Greece is apparently so bad that footy club Voukefalas has resorted to placing a local brothel’s ads on their kits (brothel’s estimated net worth: 2.4 million USD). Speaking with NovaSport FM radio station, Voukefala president Giannis Batziolas joked that when the club’s execs relayed the peculiar partnership news to its players, they immediatedly “wanted to know about bonuses”.

Just kidding or not, if the ‘ballers weren’t saying it, they sure as hell were thinking it.

Meanwhile another club, Paleopyrgo, struck a deal with a local funeral home that will see players wearing blck shirts with a big cross in the middle.

    Well, if it's legal then, why not? call me superstitious but I'd rather be supported by a brothel house than a funeral home…a black kit with a cross in front of your chest? that's scary..lol..

    Well, they got to do what they gotta to do. Some teams have burgers on their shirts as sponsors, and burgers clog ur arteries. So in my opinion promoting a (legal in Greece so hopefully no STDs) brothel is safer than burgers and other junk food

    Looks like the sponsor's employees had a hand in designing that delightfully pink kit too.

    Is it any worse really than the questionable funds of some other club's owners?

    Money's money and prostitution is legal in Greece. If you look up the interview with the owner of that particular establishment she's pretty funny and seems to be genuinely interested in making sure the team does well (she made some comments about the midfield). The prospect of bonuses is a probably a great incentive too. :P

    A team of athletes being sponsored by a whorehouse. Nope, nobody's asking for trouble there.
