Times are bad at Portsmouth Football Club, but when the club is put up for sale on eBay, you know things can only get worse.
To be clear, the actual listing is a prank. But there’s already been 80 bids and the highest bid is now at £999,999.00
The auction is listed as “Portsmouth City Football Club Ltd.” on the British eBay site. The description says, “New owner desperately wanted for financially-stricken south-coast football club. Previous and current owner(s) have run this fantastic club into the ground and it is facing an uncertain future. Liars, crooks, asset-strippers and tax cheats are obviously NOT welcome. All bids considered but please get a move on as the electricity is about to be cut off moosh.”
