New away strip on sale in Planet Blue from 9am although supply issues affect youth sizes
Town’s brand new 2015/16 away kit is due to be launched from 9:00am tomorrow morning via Planet Blue.
However the Blues have been informed by official technical kit supplier, Adidas, that they are experiencing some slight delays with the supply of youth (children) sizes that will impact upon stock levels available for sale to fans.
There will be stock available in all sizes of shirt for the initial launch on Friday 3rd July (tomorrow).
Whilst these delays could affect stock availability in the short term, it is hoped that any delay will be fully rectified by the end of July with no further issues expected.
Town are working closely with Adidas to ensure that stock is released for sale as soon as it comes available and to ensure that communication with fans on the latest stock levels remains as transparent as possible.
James Osborne, Director of Clubs at Adidas, has released the following statement on behalf of the sports brand: “Due to unforeseen circumstances we can confirm that there will be a short delay in the delivery of the full allocation of kids stock to the Club.
“Adidas would like to officially apologise for any inconvenience these delays might have caused and remain committed to resolving the situation as soon as possible.
“Adidas will continue to work closely with the Club in the coming weeks and will ensure fans are kept fully up to speed on the situation.”
Ian Milne, Town’s Managing Director, added: “We sincerely regret this delay in being able to meet some of the demand for junior shirts, but we are working hard with Adidas to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
“Our partnership with Adidas has to date been very successful, as shown by our fans demand for both home and away shirts. Please bear with us whilst we overcome this current supply difficulty.”
Fans can purchase the new 2015/16 away kit and away goalkeeper kit in store from 9:00am tomorrow, with orders commencing online later this morning. Orders placed before 3pm will be despatched for delivery from tomorrow, Friday 3rd July.
