Naked Icelandic Footballers Calendar

The football players of the team BÍ in the towns of Bolungarvík and Ísafjördur in the West Fjords have found a new way of funding their expensive competition costs. They have published a calendar for the year 2010, where for each month a player appears stark naked, bb.is reported.

The team expect record sales of the 2010 calendar to fund their expensive competition travel cost. The team plays in the second division and has to criss-cross the country to meet other teams in the division.

The idea comes from a calendar published by a women’s club in England a few years back and has inspired similar efforts from all sorts of parties in Iceland. The women’s club of Biskupstungur in Iceland was the first, then came the Reykjavík Fire Brigade and now the footballers.

The photographs in the calendar are said to be artistic but some have been described as nearing erotic. The team expects double profits, first from sales of the calendar and then an increase in ticket sales when the team starts playing in the summer. The picture shown comes from the calendar.
