Huddersfield Town has released its Paddy Power sponsored ‘home kit’ for the 2019/20 Championship season and it hasn’t gone down well with the club’s fans.
Following the unveiling of the apparent strip on the Terrier’s official Twitter account, the club has seen a slew of replies comparing the kit to a beauty pageant sash.
The design features a massive ‘Paddy Power’ logo etched diagonally across the front of the strip, and despite adding a fabulous stylistic touch, supporters are not pleased, dubbing the release as fake as disbelief surges through the fan-base.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented on the design, stating: “We’ve gone for a really modern twist on how we feature the famous Paddy Power logo. Paddy Power is a very forward-thinking, innovative company – that’s one of the main reasons that we’re so excited to work with them – the new ‘sash’ style logo is really eye-catching, and helps maintain our reputation as being innovators too.”
Eagle eyed fans have noticed the design seemingly does not adhere to sponsorship regulations set by the FA, however, this has not stopped the club from stating the kit will be on show for tonight’s friendly against Rochdale and for the rest of the season.
A Spokesman for Paddy Power stated: “We’re sure Huddersfield fans will be delighted with this season’s kit.”
