Who should I support?
Well BATE Borisov are pretty well known after beating Arsenal in Europe last year, Alexsander Hleb used to play for them and their midfielder Igor Stasevich has provided more assists (7) in the Europa League than any other player this season.
For those who like an underdog look no further than Belshina, promoted from the second tier last season and who are hoping new signing Leanid Kovel can keep them up this term.
But knowing football fans, one Belarus Premier League will be more popular than the rest – and that’s FC Slutsk.
We’ll let popular Belarrusion sports website Pressball explain why.
“FC Slutsk has seen hype due to its name,” they surprisingly explain.
“Slutsk sounds similar to the rude colloquial English word ‘slut’, which means a ‘woman who has a lot of sexual partners’ or ‘women who have a lot of sexual partners’ in plural.”
