Club Irapuato, of the Mexican 2nd division (Liga de Ascenso), has issued a challenge to it’s fans via Twitter. “If there are 8 thousand fans and we lose against Correcaminos we will return your money after the game,” read the tweet.
Irapuato, which has been having a sub-par season, are currently in 11th place of the Liga de Ascenso table with 8 points product of two wins, two ties, and four loses. The publicity stunt is expected to lure in more fans in hopes of bringing back the team’s home field advantage.
If only Chivas of Guadalajara owner, Jorge Vergara, would be as bold perhaps the club would not be having attendance problems.
