Dutch fans given orange shorts to watch World Cup

Fans forced to watch match in underwear thanks to logo-bearing lederhosen embargo.
The BBC reports that Dutch soccer fans wearing orange lederhosen are being given orange shorts to watch the World Cup Holland/Agentina match. The lederhosen are a promotional item from a non-official World Cup sponsor. Last Friday, 1000 fans had to watch a match in their underwear because FIFA rules prevented them from wearing their lederhosen in the stadium.
