The female pitch invader who disrupted Saturday night’s Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham is set to face a Spanish court in a $20 million suit.
The pitch invader, who has since been revealed as Kinsey Wolanski, has been hit by a suit by UEFA for authorized advertisement during live broadcast.
According to UEFA, the action by Kinsey breaches a clause in the UEFA’s Broadcast and Media Partnership Agreement which requires all broadcast and media partners to be compensated accordingly for the authorize exposure of writings on the pitch.
“If footballers are penalized for sending a message through inner wears while celebrating a goal, then you should know that you can’t just get on the pitch to market your website”, UEFA said in a statement.
Kinsey was in a Vitaly Uncensored branded wear, a website owned by her boyfriend who has been banned from entering stadiums worldwide after invading a 2014 World Cup match.
She is set to appear before court in Madrid this week.
Kinsey teased Harry Winks on Instagram today for ‘distracting’ him during the match.
Liverpool secured their sixth European Cup win in Madrid thanks to a 2-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano, with Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi getting the decisive goals. The game was a rather turgid affair, though, with neither side playing at their best, and the most excitement on the night came in the 18th minute when a pitch invader evaded stewards and sprinted towards the centre circle.
Kinsey Wolanski, a model, had 300,000 followers on Instagram before the stunt but now has 2.4million in just a matter of hours. She uploaded a video of her streaking in the early hours of Sunday morning, along with a message: ‘Streaking the Champions League! Life is for living, do crazy things that you will remember forever.’
