FA Has Concerns Over Paddy Power's Sponsorship of Huddersfield Town

Paddy Power's recently-signed sponsorship with Huddersfield Town is drawing concerns from the English Football Association, who claims that portions of the shirt sponsorship violates regulations.

The potential violations regard the size and placement of the Paddy Power logo on the shirts, as the logo spreads across the entire width of the front fabric. This is much larger than what is traditionally seen for sponsors, and although it fits in line with the gambling firm's bold marketing strategy, it may violate rules set forth by the FA. The logo reportedly cannot exceed more than 250 square centimeters.

The FA issued a statement on the matter, which reads: "The FA has clear Kit & Advertising regulations for all club matchday kits. If we believe that any club has breached these rules we will look into the matter and, if required, will take the appropriate action.

"We have contacted Huddersfield Town about their 2019-20 kit to seek their observations."

Turns out this was all another classic Paddy Power stunt to promote their brand. 😂

They could be shocking and attracting the attention even without breaking the rules for a shirt frame advertising cause it would look really...pompous ornate and even...ugly I think..that's why there is such rules in first place, here's a small example.

Yeah, I see some of those European jerseys and think "WTF are they thinking?". It's bad enough that there's so much on the ice (we have a little bit on the ice but nothing as bad), but the jerseys and pants too?!?

Yeah..exactly Slim, there's a strict rules for that in NHL which I really like...in some of the European Hockey Leagues the players looks like clowns but it's getting worst when you sometimes struggling to see the puck when it's so colorful on the ice as well..that's annoying and the main reason I don't bother watching these leagues at all.
