Advertise on Lukas Podolski’s face, pay his transfer fee
A unique way of raising money from FC Köln
Bundesliga outfit FC Köln have found an interesting way of generating the cash to purchase Lukas Podolski – getting people to advertise on their future star’s face. Sadly, for now this is only online and players are not forcibly being tattooed with Jack Wolfskin on their eyelid.
The club is selling 8×8 pixel squares of Poldi’s ugly mug for €25 each on their Poldi-Pixel site. As you can see, there has already been a few takers but the club will have to shift 400,000 pixels before they pay off the entire €10 million fee which will be owed to Bayern Munich when he completes the expected move in July.
