WATCH: Dutch soccer team use lingerie models instead of child mascots
RKC Waalwijk used Valentine’s Day as an excellent excuse to have their players accompanied onto the pitch by scantily-clad models.
The Dutch second division outfit, who currently reside at the bottom of the league table, abandoned the conventional child mascot approach for something a bit different.

While the display may have got some of the crowd standing, they may not have stayed erect for too long as their side went down 1-0 to FC Emmen.
The victors kindly posted a video of their opposition emerging onto the pitch, looking much happier than a team at the bottom of the league should.
