Town explain reasons behind temporary benchwear as revealed two weeks ago
Town would like to confirm the reasons why the first-team players have been wearing Adidas benchwear to travel to games in so far this season, after it caused some confusion amongst supporters.
As fans are aware, Town’s kits and benchwear are currently manufactured by Mitre and have been for the past five years, with that contract still to run until the end of the current season.
Unfortunately due to a delay with one of their suppliers, Mitre have been unable to deliver some of the training kit for the players and coaching staff for the new season.
Mitre have sourced alternative benchwear for the first team on a temporary basis, before the staff and players return to wearing Mitre kit when the final delivery is received in the next few weeks.
Once this final delivery has been received, the Blues will revert to wearing the contractual Mitre benchwear.
