Seems things are getting pretty financially tricky over there in Greece, with many of that countries sporting clubs these days bereft of funds. So if the government can no longer step in one wonders who actually can?

newser: Players on a cash-strapped Greek soccer team now wear pink practice jerseys with the logos “Villa Erotica” and “Soula’s House of History,” two bordellos it recruited as sponsors after drastic government spending cuts left the country’s sports clubs facing ruin.

Other teams have also turned to unconventional financing. One has a deal with a local funeral home and others have wooed kebab shops, a jam factory and producers of Greece’s trademark feta cheese.

Hmm, bordello’s I can imagine cause soccer has traditionally been a male dominated sport (can you imagine all the lads going for a guilt free blowjob after the home team wins?) but feta cheese?

That said the newest choice of ad sponsor has raised some eyebrows.

Reflects Yiannis Batziolas, club chairman of the Voukefalas amateur soccer club:

“Unfortunately, amateur football has been abandoned by almost everyone. It’s a question of survival.”

That said prostitution which happens to be legal in Greece and where brothels operate under strict guidelines has caused some furore as some league organizers have banned the pink jerseys during games, saying the deal violates “the sporting ideal” and is inappropriate for underage fans. The team still practices in them though.

Reflects madame and brothel owner Soula Alevridou, the team’s new benefactor who has to date already paid more than 1000 euros ($1312) for players to wear her jerseys about whether she’s bothered by the ban on her jersey at some of the game meets:

“It’s not the kind of business that needs promotion,” she said, dressed all in white and flanked by two young women in dark leggings at a recent game. “It’s a word-of-mouth kind of thing.”

“If we don’t help our scientists and athletes, where will we be?” she asked. “Greece has educated people, cultured people and good athletes. It’s better to help them than take our money to Switzerland. I am a Greek woman, and I love my country.”

If only there were more women like Soula for financially starved sporting outlets to turn to as well…

Isn’t it time you started visiting the local whore house down the road too? Your nation’s sporting future might rely on it.
