Coventry club shop sells 'new' vest carrying sponsor print of Leicester | inside World Soccer

Coventry City fans have been left angry after spotting merchandise on sale in the club store with the faint branding of Leicester City's sponsors King Power on them.


A white Coventry vest made by Puma, costing £15, has been spotted on sale by Twitter user @CJ_covblaze while in the club shop.

It has been suggested that the material is from last year's Leicester training kit that has had the sponsorship lettering peeled off, before the badge was replaced and the item was put back up for sale.

"The club is a complete laughing stock," one angry Coventry supporter told the Coventry Telegraph.

"First they took the team out of Coventry and now they're using the sponsor's logo of one of our rivals on merchandise in the club shop.

"It's a disgrace and I've had enough. People are laughing at us on social networks. It's beyond a joke.

"You wouldn't see Liverpool's Standard Chartered shirt logo on a Manchester United shirt in the Old Trafford club shop, would you?"

Coventry have since confirmed that the vest has been taken off sale after the error was realised, blaming "an isolated production factory defect".
