Johannesburg - Adult website Ashley
Madison has offered national soccer team Bafana Bafana a sponsorship deal of
nearly R10 million, The Star reported on Tuesday.
The site's chief executive
and founder Noel Biderman said his website, whose slogan is "life is
short, have an affair", could fill the sponsorship gap left after Puma
pulled its support for the SA Football Association (Safa).
Biderman reportedly wrote a
letter to SAFA boss Danny Jordaan.
"Sportsmen are famous
for their cheating ways and we feel linking our dating site with this
impressive club's performance historically and tying in to its future will
create a powerful partnership," he reportedly said in the letter.
SAFA spokesperson Dominic
Chimhavi dismissed the offer as a marketing ploy.
"We haven't received a
single letter," he told the newspaper.
"Anyway, the Bafana
Bafana brand is a national asset and we wouldn't want it to be associated with
something that will make it a laughing stock."
