KUALA LUMPUR - The sale of condoms in South Korea has risen five-fold after fans celebrated their football team winning in the opening World Cup game against Greece.
The game on June 12 saw about a million red-shirted fans nationwide, including 200,000 in Seoul, crowd boulevards, stadiums and parks to cheer the side’s 2-0 win over Euro 2004 champions Greece, reports the New Strait Times.
According to the JoongAng Daily, convenience stores and fried chicken outlets were doing brisk business, and the Bokwang Family Mart chain stores saw a near doubling of sales as fans took to the streets.
Stores in residential areas also did well, as those tuning in at home bought three times the beer and more than twice the number of snacks.
It also said after the game, fans in celebratory mood bought five times more condoms than during the team’s lacklustre 2006 World Cup performance. (ANI)
