It seems like everyone is either joining some subscription-based website or creating their own, so why not ridiculously popular Swiss soccer star Alisha Lehmann too?
Former WWE champ Mandy Rose got in trouble for doing it. Popular golf influencer Paige Spiranac created her own pay site. Bare knuckle boxer Ebanie Bridges promoted her account in a very unorthodox way prior to her last fight.
Heck, former WBO and IBF champion boxer Mikaela Mayer just announced last week that she was going to join up, leading to Bridges saying she wants to do a collab.
It’s fast becoming the thing to do, especially for athletes in sports that don’t pay very well.
On Thursday, My.Club, another subscription-based website, trying to get its piece of the pie, made an offer to Swiss soccer star Alisha Lehmann, wanting her to create an account with them.
In an open letter to Alisha Lehmann, the site wrote that they would be willing to compensate her up to $50,000, with an additional $50,000 donation made to the Swiss Women’s Super League, if she joined up with them.
“It totally makes sense at this level of popularity to launch your ‘own club,'” the company wrote. “You can post training photos, thirst traps and personally field questions from fans and not have to deal with people sliding in your DMs 24/7.”
With the women’s World Cup coming up this summer, Alisha Lehmann, who plays forward for English FA WSL club Aston Villa and the Switzerland national team, is sure to make some new fans to add her already eye-popping count of more than 12 million Instagram followers.
Will the 24-year-old, who has dated her Swiss national teammate Ramona Bachmann as well as Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, take them up on the offer?
It could be ridiculously lucrative if she does. And that’s before all the subscription money starts rolling in, which it most certainly will.
