#SaveOurShirts

Post by uncle jack and coke » 19 Jul 2019, 11:50

Some brilliant PR work this week by Huddersfield Town and Paddy Power around the shirt sponsorship.

For those that may have missed it, Huddersfield played a friendly against Rochdale in their “new” shirt which featured the sponsors name (Paddy Power) in an oversized diagonal sash. Many people, including the FA, took the bait and became very vocal against it, indeed on Wednesday it was the second most trending story on Twitter.

This morning the official home and away shirts were announced and surprise, surprise there is no sponsors logo. Paddy Power say that shirt sponsorship has gone too far and the shirts should be returned to the people that matter - the fans. To this end they have launched their #SaveOurShirt campaign.
