Karsiyaka S.K. Fans Make QR Code Banners to Insult Goztepe Fans During Turkish Soccer Game

Turkish soccer is scoring some major points for ingenuity this season. Fans of Karsiyaka S.K. have took stadium banter (abuse) to a new level by using QR codes to insult fans of opponents Goztepe during a recent game, according to Offthepost.info.

Karsiyaka fans printed extra large QR code banners that took those who scanned the codes on their cell phones to a website containing a special message. The messages on the website called Goztepe fans various insulting words in a number of languages.

It is a clever work-around to solve the age-old problem of spending one’s time and money painting large and insulting banners — only to have them confiscated by stadium security when unfurled.

Earlier this season, the Turkish FA made Istanbul giants Fenerbache play its game against Manisaspor in front of a crowd of women and children only. The initiative was a response to crowd trouble at a preseason game during the summer.
