Huddersfield Town charged with misconduct following fake kit stunt


The Football Association (FA) has charged Huddersfield Town with misconduct following the club wore a fake kit as portion of a marketing and advertising stunt in pre-season.

Huddersfield made a social media storm when they released the design and style for a new property shirt sporting a giant sash emblazoned with the name of betting agency Paddy Energy.

The Championship club confirmed the controversial strip to be a hoax following donning it in a pre-season match against Rochdale.

An FA statement study: “Huddersfield Town FC has been charged with misconduct in relation to The FA’s Kit and Marketing Regulations.

“It is alleged that playing kit worn by its initially group through a pre-season friendly against Rochdale AFC on 17 July 2019 was in breach of FA Regulation C.two(i).

“The club has till 16 August 2019 to supply a response.”

The Paddy Energy logo on the shirt worn against Rochdale appeared to exceed the maximum coverage permitted by the FA.

Huddersfield later released their genuine property kit, which does not function a sponsor’s logo.

Jan Siewert’s side had been relegated from the Premier League final season and lost their Championship opener at property Derby County on Monday.
