Fans hire stripper to streak naked and distract opposing players
When your team is playing against the league leaders you know the importance of the '12th man', but this set of fans decided an extra woman was required.
This weekend, during a third division match in the Dutch league, Rijnsburgse Boys football club (seventh in the table), welcomed leaders AFC to their home ground. In an attempt to help their side overcome the odds, the fans stepped in with an unusual attempt to distract the opposing players, hiring a female stripper to run onto the field completely naked, carrying the flag of the local team.
The nude invasion occured just as AFC (in the red shirts) were about to take a free-kick. In the pre-conceived act, the home fans initially threw pieces of white paper from the stands, while at the same time the mysterious woman jumped into the field from the side.
The naked woman carried the flag as she ran across the field, and sure enough, caused much distraction as the players stopped to watch, many in astonishment.
After the game, the stripper spoke to local media and revealed that her incursion into the field had been a paid assignment:
"After my run [on the pitch], I continued onto my next job. I usually do strip shows, but this was a welcome change. I would definitely do it again," the woman known as Foxy announced.
Unfortunately, the distraction didn't help the team as the fans had hoped, as they went on to lose 6-2. They remain seventh in a table made up of 18 teams.
