Sydney, January 16 (ANI): An Australian football club has decided to scrap its sponsorship deal with a brothel after facing pressure from the league's ruling body.
St Kilda City Football Club had struck an agreement, believed to be worth around 2,000 dollars, with the California Club sex parlour for the season.
But the accord now lies in the dump after AFL Victoria raised objections.
"AFL Victoria is committed to making football clubs family friendly environments where women and children are all welcome," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted chief executive Peter Schwab as saying.
Southern Football League chief executive Wayne Holdsworth added: "It doesn't fit well with our philosophy of showing respect towards women." (ANI)
