Adidas has announced that it will be refunding fans who purchased Arsenal FC’s 2023-24 “authentic” home shirt, which honors the team’s ‘Invincibles’ season from 20 years ago.
The design of the shirt, which has a retail price of £110, incorrectly recorded the results achieved by Arsenal during the 2003-04 Premier League campaign.
The shirt’s design included a row of W’s and D’s to highlight the wins and draws from the 38 results of the 2003-04 season.
However, the shirt only carried 32 of those results, leaving out six. The “fan” shirt, which has the same design but is a cheaper option for supporters, is unaffected by the mistake and is still available for purchase at £80 in the Arsenal club shop.
Adidas has stated that the authentic shirt will be temporarily unavailable while the design error is being corrected.
The company is working closely with the club and its partners to ensure restocked jerseys are available as soon as possible.
“We are offering full refunds to fans who have already bought one,” Adidas said in a statement.
The company has also apologized for the mistake, stating that it falls short of the standards they set for themselves as a brand.
“We apologize to the club and its fans,” the statement read. The replica ‘fan’ version of the home jersey is unaffected and is widely available for purchase.
