Jolly good. If you were worried about commercialisation of the nation’s favourite sport, you’ll be pleased to know that one football team is to start shaving QR codes into the back of their players’ heads. Oh no, wait, no you won’t.
South-East London team Bromley FC is going up against relative big fishes Leyton Orient in the first round of the FA Cup on Saturday, and to celebrate, or get a wedge of cash from a sponsor, it’s hired a stylist favoured by Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand to give the first XI QR cuts.
The link, if you’re wondering, and somehow get close enough to the back of a stationary Bromley striker to grab it with your phone’s camera, drops you on the mobile Betfair site. A sign of things to come? Let’s hope not: hit the gallery for more photos. ‘Arry wouldn’t be pleased.
