Scandal: Hooters sponsors under-10 soccer team

Our English friends were dismayed in the last few days to discover that Hooters restaurants had sponsored a children’s soccer team.

In Quebec (and in the rest of Canada too), we do not ask ourselves the question: it is Tim Hortons who sponsors the soccer teams, generally up to the U8 level (under 8 years old) inclusive.

So all the kids are vying for the ball, sporting a Timbits jersey, whether it’s blue, yellow, red, green, black, teal, eggplant, fuchsia, periwinkle, lapis lazuli or goose poop. .

After the U8, it thickens.

Clubs usually find money to keep them running smoothly from local businesses.

In Nottingham, England, the Burton Joyce under-10 team turned to Hooters restaurants.

If you have never set foot in this institution, you should know that it is known first and foremost for highlighting the generosity of the breasts not of its chickens, but of its waitresses, which obviously raises a lot of ethical questions. and morale in 2022.

When the restaurant announced on Facebook that it had agreed with the club to be its new sponsor, the players’ parents expressed their dissatisfaction.

The post is now deleted, but according to LADbiblewe could read comments like:

“Why are the Hooters sexualizing children and who the hell allowed them?”

“These boys are under 10 years old. I doubt very much that they are aware of the sexual attraction of women. It’s wrong on so many levels.”

“Certainly not scary to involve sexuality in 9-year-old boys.”

Conversely, at least one commenter seemed to welcome the partnership:

“I would have liked my U10 team to do the same. Why are people so angry about this?! They obviously never went to Hooters! A great bar, with a great marketing plan and supporting a local team where the kids might not have had gear otherwise. People need to relax and go for a beer.”

The Nottingham branch is currently the only chain to be open in England.

A second franchise could soon open in Liverpool.


What do you think of Hooters sponsoring an under-10 soccer team?

It’s disgraceful and inappropriate.

It’s good that they are involved in the community.
