A South Korean soccer team is apologizing after they accidentally filled the stands of their fan-less stadium with sex dolls for a weekend game.

FC Seoul used the dolls in place of human spectators at their Sunday match against Gwangju FC to give the players the feel of fans ;looking on due to the coronavirus keeping the actual fans out.,

Via ESPN:

“For Seoul’s first home game, around 20 mannequins, many holding banners and all wearing masks, were spaced evenly around the seats behind the goal usually occupied by the club’s most active fans.

As the game progressed, however, Korean social media started to light up as it became apparent to viewers that these mannequins, supplied by a local company, Dalkom, whose CEO is a Seoul fan, looked very much like sex dolls.”

“We would like to apologise to the fans,” the club said in a statement released on social media.

“We are very sorry about the supporting mannequins that were placed during the game on May 17. These mannequins may have been made to look and feel like real humans but they are not for sexual use — as confirmed by the manufacturer from the beginning.”

“Our intention was to do something lighthearted in these difficult times. We will think hard about what we need to do to ensure that something like this never happens again,” the club added.

FC Seoul won the game 1-0.
