[Source] - In an act of protest against the commercialization of their sport, two amateur German soccer teams played a game on Sunday completely naked.
“The football system is sick, that’s why we all get naked,” Starczewski told sports magazine 11Freunde ahead of the match.
“Everybody wants to have authenticity. But I think you are only particularly authentic if you do without all the other stuff, really everything, from the advertising banners to the clothing.

The revealing protest comes just weeks after Swiss prosecutors launched a criminal probe against the head of FIFA, soccer’s governing body, for alleged “rampant, systematic, deep-rooted” corruption.
Jesus, Germany. What are we doing here? Naked soccer to protest the commercialization and corruption of FIFA? Couldn't we at least get some people in better shape? At the minimum they should have agreed for a better picture because all I'm thinking is how that free kick 100% drilled one of those dudes directly in the bare dick.
I just have so many questions. Did fans show up to this? Did they broadcast it? If fans showed up or if anyone watched this, that's the type of lunatic I need to talk to. That's the person who will storm FIFA's headquarters and get arrested for protesting. Not the person getting naked to play soccer - which is one of the worst games you can play naked. No one wants to see dick and balls wagging all around while you play a game only using your legs. Do you know how many times someone probably got hit in the dick?
If you want to protest shit, get naked AT FIFA. Rule number 1 of protesting I believe. Fucking weirdos.
