While the women’s World Cup trudges along in Germany with barely a pulse in the United States, a Russian soccer club has taken the extra step to guarantee a great turnout for its next match. FC Rossiyanka, 3-time Russian Women’s Premier League champions, are so cash strapped that they’ve promised to play their next match in bikinis to put men in the seats. Extreme? To Busted Coverage? No way. To purists? Of course.

According to our trusty Google Russian-to-English translator:

I think that our soccer players are beautiful and attractive woman, brilliantly holding the ball, no way inferior to the well-known tennis players and gymnasts, – says Sergey Zhuravlev. – Unfortunately, at this point  our sport is not enough due attention from the sports officials and government programs to support the sport. Women’s football is not developing as fast as in Europe.

With this project we want to draw attention to women’s soccer, to increase his popularity among the male population.  Necessary to break the stereotype of women’s football as a faint, not a spectacular sport. Throughout the world, the sport is on the first cast and is growing rapidly, largely thanks to government support and assistance to national associations.  The main thing is that our athletes understand and support our ideas. Together we will achieve our goals, because women’s football in Russia is doomed to success!

It should be noted that last year the football club “Russian woman” and similar organized shooting RZHFL players of the club and the Russian team. Then photos of the best football players of Russia in the form of glamorous ladies and gentle angels caused a real sensation.
According to head coach Tatiana Egorova, the experience contributes to the promotion of women’s football, and the athletes themselves are starting to feel more confident.

Here is the roster from the FC Rossiyanka website. Just sayin’, makeup is amazing. Might be an old roster.

One the other hand, we’ve done our research and the club really is part of UEFA and really does play in a decent stadium near Moscow. The club is even letting their ladies do 5 Question-like interviews with the Russian media – in bikinis.

More details and ticket information as it becomes available.

  • As much as I would like to see this, I think that it is sending the wrong message. These are the women 10 year old girls are looking for to be their role models. The only thing this will give a young girl the impression of is that she should exploit and let herself become exploited for money. This soccer team might as well become porn stars. This is going to have a negative affect on women and this shows men that women are just a piece of ass!
  • I think it is far better for young girls learn this lesson now rather than when they are older. Women *are* sex symbols in the eyes of men. Possibly sad, but true. The sooner women figure this out, the sooner they can in turn exploit men and take their money!
  • Sad that you see it this way...the truth is women see men as sex symbols just as much as vice-vesa. Women would have no problem seeing a team of football players play shirtless. The only difference is that female sexuality is tolerated...
  • I whant to buy the calender.Seriously if they need funds and are going to play in bikini anyway ,then why not?
  • next year they will be hosting car washes
  • The fact that women do this takes equal opportunity back 20 years, oh ha ha, let's play in our bikinis! It's like disgusting and I want to hurl.
  • First of all, thinking men and women have now, or ever will have, equal opportunity is a fantasy that you are living in. This article is a testament to that. Men will forever be powerless against an athletic woman in swimwear, these women know that, which is why this promo is a good idea. For God's sake woman, its professional women's soccer, in Russia. Women's sports are BORING. The WNBA isn't even on TV. Women shouldn't even be playing pro sports unless it's beach volleyball and only then they should only be either Brazilian, Austrailian, or named Misti May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. Granted, soccer is more popular in everysingle country outside of the great US of A and Canada, but women have a different place in Europe. These women are just lucky to have teammates that don't want to sell themselves online as a mail-order bride or a socialist government trying to kill them. It is Russia, which means all the spectators will be drunk off of potato vodka. To spell it out for you, Authena, women everywhere will never see equality any more so than blacks, so black women are at a huge disadvantage. You want to talk about equal opportunity? How about an equal opportunity to choose between white or wheat toast when you make me my lunch.
  • It funny but the wrong message here is the higher then mighty mouths who feel it wrong,you should have supported them when they needed it,not from the computer with cat like messages! The reasson women sports fails all the time is because WOMEN do not support them and men have to bail them out! Equal would imply that you are on the same level and that make me want to laugh!!!
  • Really nice women but.. not so many that have breasts. Not knocking that but are they all using steriods?... most women have something on top.
  • What a bunch of morons!! Obviously they don't think much of their sport and their team if they are willing to degrade themselves in this fashion. WOW...we haven't come a long way baby... we are losing ground fast. Why is it that women have this constant need to exploit themselves and men do not? I am beginning to think men are more intelligent. Men are treating women with less and less respect, and in many cases it is deservec. I repeat...what a bunch of morons....
  • I don't see anything wrong with beautiful women showing off what they have descretly. I have always thought that playboy should do more woman athletes instead of these model wannabe's
    If they want some noteriety let them, the best team will win and get the medals.
  • its sickening and hypocricsy and sexist.......why is this even allowed... meanwhile women soccer teams in the middle east were banned from playing cause of their headscarves.... either you lose the clothing most of it or you cant play.... its f@@ken sick

Oklahoma kicker has the best playbook

Many football teams are now foregoing the classic hard-copy playbook for iPads, which are lighter and save on huge printing cost, among other handy features. Earlier today, we took a look at Georgia’s new iPads (and a whole host of USB cables). Apparently Oklahoma has also joined in on the iPad trend. Of course, not everyone’s playbook is made equal. OU kicker Michael Hunnicutt...
