Paddy Power launch the ‘Save Our Shirt’ campaign
Huddersfield and Paddy Power have finally confessed their joint kit was part of a campaign to ‘return shirts to the fans’.
The Terriers released their actual kit for next season, sponsored by Umbro but without a main sponsor across the front.
The original, subject of mass controversy, saw the bookies’ logo stretch diagonally across the shirt to a satirical extent.
And they eventually admitted on Twitter it was a fake.
A Paddy Power tweet read: “So yeah, our Huddersfield shirt WAS a fake. We’re not just sponsoring them this season, we’re UNsponsoring them too, through our Save Our Shirt campaign. #SaveOurShirt”
