Mordovia have promised free entry to fans who bring a packet of cigarettes to the stadium ahead of their game against Fakel Voronezh.
Mordovia have come up with the lung-burning plan as a way of bringing fans into the 12,000-seater Stadion Start for the match on on March 26.
Quite why the second-tier side's owners want cigarettes (and presumably not even for themselves) is anyone’s guess.
Mordovia are currently in the relegation zone while Fakel are competing for a play-off space, fifth in the Russian Football National League.
