What’s that? Huddersfield playing silly buggers with their shirts again? Great.
After the Paddy Power palaver of last season where they had a fake sponsor and then no actual sponsor as the shirt sponsor, this season they’ve got no actual shirt sponsor when they actually wanted a shirt sponsor. Actually, hold on a minute, they have now, in fact they’ve now got loads of sponsors. Man alive…
To summarise the mayhem, they couldn’t find a sponsor for various reasons (including alienating betting companies with the PP stunt – such a bad thing?) so started without one. They then announced that some of the shirts going forward would use the logos of 3 charities that missed-out on donations as a result of one of their regular large charity events being cancelled due to Covid19. A nice touch.
In addition, there’s a bunch of other shirts needing sponsors, so Town have opened-up a raffle where companies can enter with the chance to have their logo on the front for 1 match, or buy all the tickets and guarantee that happens. At the time of writing there’s been a handful of different sponsors with more to come, all making for a very expensive season for all the Terrier shirt collectors out there. Got it?
The shirt itself, well, it looks like it’s missing a sponsor…
Standard stripes not too dissimilar to last season’s, and the 3 stars of their title winning treble on the back of the neck. The star is undoubtedly the woven crest, one of the country’s classics resplendent in its usual colours and woven solid. Such cleanliness may go down well with those that’d happily bin all shirt sponsorship. That’s all she wrote.
