SPANISH football side Getafe have launched a smartphone application to help fans hook up at matches, hoping supporters will couple and boost the club’s fanbase by making Getafe-loving babies.
The club said its “Getafinder” works like the popular app Tinder in helping users meet potential mates nearby, but it will only work near the side’s Alfonso Perez stadium in the Madrid suburbs.
“Getafe is historically one of the football clubs with the fewest fans and the most empty stands in the first division,” the club said in a statement.
“With this app you can seek out the Getafe fan you like best in complete anonymity. And if someone you like likes you too, make a match and procreate!”
Positioning software on the app makes it operative just near the stadium “so that it will only be used by supporters of the club”.
Getafe’s stadium has 17,000 seats but average matchday attendance is just 9000.
The club said the app is part of a campaign aiming to boost the number of registered supporters to more than 10,000.
