Pitch invader promotes cryptocurrency during Euro 2020 game
A pitch invader promoted cryptocurrency during the Euro 2020 game between Finland and Belgium on Monday.
The woman, who jumped over the fence and almost ran to the halfway line at the Gazprom Arena in Russia, was scantily dressed with a top that read ‘WTF COIN’ along with the link to its website.
WTF Coin is understood to be a cryptocurrency that rivals Bitcoin.
The female pitch invader’s antics briefly halted the fixture as stadium security managed to apprehend the pitch invader and escorted the woman off the field while covering her front with a jacket.
The incident didn’t affect the game as the Romelu Lukaku-led Belgium won 2-0 to secure their third straight victory to finish as Group B toppers.
There was also a pitch invader in the other group game between Russia and Denmark where a man wearing a Russia shirt made it to the field before quickly being taken down by security.
These two occurrences were the latest in a series of pitch invasion incidents creating headlines in football after spectators took it upon themselves to run onto the pitch in indecent outfits.
Kinsey Wolanski got more than two million Instagram followers following her pitch invasion during the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham in 2019.
