South Korean football clubside FC Seoul have been handed a record £67,000 fine for filling their empty stands with s3* dolls during their K-League match against Gwangju FC as the league resumed without fans due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Around 20 s3* dolls (male and female) were placed in the stadium with some wearing face masks and the team’s jersey colours while others displayed t-shirts and placards with the logo of SoloS, a s3* toy seller.

They said the club should have know they were s3* dolls given their appearance and characteristics.

K-League rules state inappropriate or s3*ual advertisements are not permitted in stadiums.

The club have since apologized to fans.

‘We are sincerely sorry for causing deep concern to fans,’ FC Seoul said in a statement to supporters.

‘We have confirmed from the very beginning that they had no connection to s3* toys.

‘Our intention from the start was to provide even a small entertainment after it was decided that the games would be hosted behind closed doors due to coronavirus.

‘Regardless of that, we would like to apologise once again to everyone who loves and supports FC Seoul. We will be holding further discussions on how we can review potential problems in similar matters. We will put forth our due diligence to prevent such issues in the future.’
