FC Seoul faces sanctions after putting sex dolls in seats

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A South Korean soccer club is facing penalties that include expulsion from its own stadium for putting sex dolls in empty seats during a match last weekend. The K-League is one of the few soccer leagues operating during the coronavirus pandemic and is playing in empty stadiums. FC Seoul’s attempts to increase the atmosphere at the stadium backfired despite its 1-0 win over Gwangju. The club expressed its “sincere remorse” but initially said it believed it was using regular mannequins to mimic a home crowd. K-League officials have referred the matter to a disciplinary committee.
