ITV Terminate Robbie Earle From World Cup Coverage

by | 15th, June 2010

ITV Statement: FIFA World Cup Tickets – (warning: might be interrupted by an advert.) Robbie Earle has been naughty:

Following claims by FIFA that official 2010 World Cup tickets may have been used for ambush marketing, ITV has reviewed its entire ticket allocation for the tournament.

And they sold them to a Dutch marketing firm flogging beer.

Immediate investigations indicated that a block of ITV tickets would appear to have been used for unauthorised purposes during the Holland v Denmark match.

Further enquiries have revealed that a substantial number of tickets allocated to Robbie Earle for family and friends have been passed to a third party in breach of FIFA rules.

As a result, Robbie Earle’s contract with ITV has been terminated with immediate effect.

Thirty six blonde women dressed in orange sat in the seats to sell the beer. You’d think the ITV camera men would thank him…
