The Los Santos Benders is a soccer team in Los Santos which parodies most British soccer teams and the behavior of their fanbases. The team has its own radio commercials and sells season tickets for $50 (though they can't be purchased by the player). It tries to attract attention to soccer by letting visitors catch up with "European-style chanting" (which are actually blatant insults targeted at the opposite team) and to give them the opportunity to commit race crimes, get into post-game riots, violent fights between team supporters and to experience the "joys of mass hatred, xenophobia and alcohol abuse".
Imaging Voice: "You love sports. But isn't it time to forget about friendly rivalries, tailgate parties and marching bands? It's time America joined the rest of the world!"
Crowd (with British accent): "Who's the wanker in the black?"
Imaging Voice: "Embrace the global passion of soccer at the next Los Santos Benders home game! Let off flares, riot, and commit race crimes, just like the sophisticated Europeans do!"
Crowd: "You're shit, and you know you are!"
Imaging Voice: "Come feel the excitement of a Benders home game, where a normal post-game melee may result in a couple of burnt cars! A proper English riot can burn a town to shreds! It's time America finally joined in on the fun! The LS Benders! Season tickets only $50."
Crowd: "Who's the wanker in the black?"
- The team's name is probably a nod to the film Bend It Like Beckham.
- "Bender" is a British slang for homosexual.
- One of the team's radio ads features a sampled version of "Who Ate All The Pies", a popular British soccer chant.
