Parents of young players are protesting the new logo of a volleyball club based in the central Bohemian town of Nymburk, the news website idnes.cz reported. In September, the club adopted a logo depicting a pig’s head and the caption Nymburské svině, or the Nymburk Swines. The club says it is a reference to the town’s alternate historical name of Svinibrod, or Swineford. The club’s official name – Volleyball Nymburk – has not been altered. The new logo has also provoked a reaction from the local authorities which have threatened to half public funding for the club. The club’s owner, meanwhile, says he hopes to reach agreement with the town hall.
