PornHub-sponsored football team banned from university league

University of Kent football team Rutherford Raiders have been told they will not be allowed to play their matches if they turn up wearing their new PornHub-sponsored kit.

Anxious to find a sponsor this term, the Raiders had jokingly mocked up shirts with PornHub's logo splashed across the front and posted a snapchat of the kit on the Facebook page "Spotted: Kent University".

And when PornHub found out, instead of complaining, the X-rated website offered to sponsor the team for real.

Unfortunately, the university failed to see the funny side and have now stepped in to ban the team from competing with the PornHub kit.

"The University of Kent sports department would never sanction sponsorship of this type - it is totally inappropriate," said University spokesman Martin Herrema.

"The team has been spoken with and will not be allowed to wear the shirts in question at any time.

"We take this issue very seriously and inter-college sports teams, which are the responsibility of Kent Sport, must present any potential sponsorship and/or logos for approval."

The Raiders, winners of the 2012/13 inter-college league, are a team competing in inter-college, inter-university and university amateur league football.

An unnamed team member told Kent Uni newspaper The Tab: "We are struggling to see why they are having a problem.

"The university cricket team are sponsored by Kingfisher, which is also an age-restricted product. The university rugby team once had training shirts with '80 minutes, 15 positions, no protection, wanna ruck?'.

"In my opinion the decision is made by people in Kent Sport that are out of touch with what's socially acceptable.

"It's hard for football teams to find a sponsor. Both Kent Sport and Rutherford refused to give us any money.

"Clearly PornHub did because there's was an opportunity to create a bit of attention. I personally haven't come across anyone yet that has found it anything other than funny."
