Huddersfield’s new Paddy Power kit causes Twitter stir

After announcing their partnership with Paddy Power earlier this week, Huddersfield Town has now released it’s apparent ‘home kit’ for the 2019/20 Championship season which has seemingly united the footballing world. 

Unfortunately for the Terriers, the reaction to the kit has resulted with more laughs than admiration, with the club now finding themselves as a trending topic on Twitter. 

The design, which features a massive ‘Paddy Power’ logo etched diagonally across the front of the strip, is believed by many viewers to be fake as disbelief rages through the fanbase.

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.”

A Spokesman for Paddy Power stated: “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.”

Huddersfield Town announced the kit on their official Twitter account earlier this morning, however, debate continues to rage on regarding the authenticity of the strip.

Many of the replies received to the original tweet compared the kit to that of a beauty pageant sash, meaning at the very least ‘the Terriers’ players will be looking fabulous this season. 

Despite the club having reiterated that this will be the strip worn in tonight’s friendly against Rochdale and for the remainder of the season, healthy scepticism continues to be held within the fanbase due to the design seemingly not adhering to sponsorship regulations set by the FA.
