Greek football sponsors: The brothel and the undertaker

Greek football sponsors: The brothel and the undertaker
By Mark Lowen BBC News, Larissa

Their goalkeeping is competent, their teamwork solid but it is not their skills that make Voukefalas FC stand out on the pitch, it is their shirts - bright pink and emblazoned with the words "Villa Erotica".

In tough times, who else to turn to but the local brothel? For this amateur club in the central Greek city of Larissa, it was the last option available to save them from bankruptcy.
-

"The authorities here don't give money for sports, for education or anything. So why shouldn't a poor football team come to me to help make ends meet?"

Her attempts at philanthropy have not always been accepted.

Recently she sent money to a school in the western Greek city of Patras to fund a much-needed photocopier but the cheque was returned.

"I just want Greece to move forward in these difficult times," she says.
-
At an amateur and national level, Greek sport is indeed in dire straits. With funding slashed and barely any investment, athletes face a bleak future.

Just eight years ago, Greece hosted the Olympics and the national team were crowned the football champions of Europe.

Now facilities are falling into disrepair and teams are resorting to desperate measures to survive.

But at least in this region, two clubs have been spared, thanks to their unconventional new backers.

In this unusual story, perhaps both sides win. Local football is given a much-needed boost, while a little more custom is drummed up for the undertaker, and for the madam.

Well...." bend'em like Beckham". Shows what Greek businesses
don't need a bailout & which do. Heard these sponsors were
demanding stiffer penalties for any kicks to the crotch.

I'm proud to say I've never entered a sheep through the back door, in a Greek brothel.

The undertaker sponsor has that ulterior motive of getting those
burials after the fan riots.

I think it's great! I wish there were more brothels so they could sponsor more sports teams.

So you know why the young Greek boy ran away from home?
He didn't like the way he was being reared. Lol kinda old but appropriate for this thread.
