Zenit Burger King

Famous Russian club Zenit Saint Petersburg have this week received a bizarre offer from fast food company ‘Burger King’.

According to Russian journalists on Twitter, Zenit received a €6.8m (500m roubles) offer from Burger King to change the name of their club to Zenit Burger King.

It doesn’t sound like a particularly enticing offer for Zenit but there’s a fairly strong chance that everyone at the club would get free burgers for life. Hooray for free burgers.
