Today’s Champions League final, one of the biggest soccer matches of the entire year, featured an uninvited guest on the pitch. During the first half of the game between Liverpool and Tottenham in Madrid, a scantily-clad woman made her way onto the field and ran around for a while before being escorted off.
Midway through the first half, the woman, wearing a pretty revealing one piece, jumped on to the field and made it about halfway across. Security eventually took her away.
She is believed to be Kinsey Wolanski, a Russian swimsuit model and internet personality. She is the girlfriend on online prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, who runs a popular YouTube channel.
Wolanski has over 550k followers on Instagram.
Kinsey Wolanski’s Champions League stunt was clearly to promote her boyfriend’s website.
Her outfit featured the phrase “Vitaly Uncensored.”

Zdorovetskiy himself is no stranger to this exact thing. He hit the field during the 2014 World Cup final between Germany and Argentina. He has since been banned from various stadiums and sporting events.
Streaking and other on-field stunts have been pretty common during these huge games. Members of the Russian protest group and punk band Pussy Riot made their way onto the field of the 2018 World Cup Final between France and Croatia.
Liverpool won this afternoon’s match 2-0 to capture its first Champions League title since 2005.
