One t-shirt with a heart resembling a woman’s buttocks in a thong bikini, flipped upside-down, and another t-shirt with a bikini-clad woman with a soccer ball standing above “Brazil” in large letters, were deemed too sexy by the authorities of Brazil!
There are many wrong things about this news.
Still, Adidas listened and withdrew the t-shirts.
In short: Adidas produced these two t-shirts - Flavio Dino, president of Brazil’s Tourism Agency, and others complained that these t-shirts represent sexual exploitation – Adidas withdrew the products off the market.
Again, there are many wrong things about such a news that I had to share it…
The two sex encouraging t-shirts!

Al Ain Football Club – UAE, now has a new football home; The Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium (استاد هزاع بن زايد). It can accommodate 25,000 spectators and was completed in a record time of just 17 months.
The launch of the new stadium is titled “The Big Kick Off”. Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium will host thousands of families from across the UAE to celebrate its opening. From 23 till 25 January, 2014, there will be a continuous festival full of activities and fun to everyone.
The 25,000-seat, 45,000 sqm Hazza Bin Zayed stadium is split over seven levels, and will be hailed as one of the most modern and unique sporting venues in the Middle East. It is one of the most sophisticated sports venues in the region and is poised to become a central destination for citizens and residents in the United Arab Emirates, as well as tourists visiting from all over the world.
This is a great step for UAE in general as it establishes for a new era of state-of-the-art football stadiums. Yet, the two questions a football fanatic should ask: 1- Why was it designed to receive only 25,000 spectators? 2- Does it meet the international standards set by FIFA to be considered a ‘licensed’ stadium?
More details about the stadium and the opening can be found on the official website here.
