Huddersfield Release Outrageous Home Kit With New Sponsor Paddy Power, And Their Fans Are Furious

Huddersfield Release Outrageous Home Kit With New Sponsor Paddy Power, And Their Fans Are Furious

Huddersfield fans were left in disbelief after their team unveiled a new kit for the new season sponsored by Paddy Power.

Supporters of the club were left hoping the new home strip design that the club released was a prank by the Irish bookmakers.

In a change from the norm the Championship club will have a 'sash' look to their new shirt instead of the sponsor going straight across the chest as traditional and fans are fuming.

Now we wouldn't want to call Huddersfield or Paddy Power liars but the Irish bookies do have a history of pranks. That said it would also be very on brand if it were real too.

We'll find out the truth later on Wednesday with the club playing a pre-season friendly against Rochdale in their new shirt.

A PP spokesman said, "We're delighted to work with Huddersfield Town on this bold new kit design.

"As a brand which embraces doing things differently, we didn't want to get into shirt sponsorship just to do the same as everyone else. We feel the diagonal design will be the most distinctive sponsor logo in the Football League - appropriate for the most distinctive sponsor there is.

"We're sure Huddersfield fans will be delighted with this season's kit." - that last line is utter gold.

Huddersfield Town's Commercial Director Sean Jarvis said: "The kit launch is a big day for many supporters, who are keen to see what the team will be running out in during the coming season.

"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."

We just hope this is real!
