Home shirt announcement
28th June 2013
Swansea City is extremely disappointed to inform supporters that there will be no adult home shirts on sale at the new Cwmdu internet direct warehouse launch and Debenhams on Saturday.
There will also be no training wear on offer tomorrow, but this is expected to be rectified within the next week.
The new away kit is available in all sizes, plus home shorts and socks. The only home shirts available are aged up to 14.
The club's official kit supplier adidas have issued the following statement:
"adidas wishes to sincerely apologise to the club and all Swansea City fans.
"Unfortunately there has been a delay with the delivery of the new 2013/2014 adult home shirt and some items from the new 2013/14 Swansea City training wear range due to a situation which regrettably adidas has been unable to rectify in time for the scheduled launch.
"adidas is immensely proud of our partnership with Swansea City Football Club and we are working extremely hard to ensure this situation is resolved quickly and efficiently.
"We would like to put on record how sorry we are for any inconvenience caused to the fans and the club by the delay in adidas delivering these items.
"The revised launch date for the 2013/2014 adults home shirt and relevant items from the new 2013/14 Swansea City training wear range will be communicated to the fans via the club website as soon as possible."
Swansea City vice-chairman, Leigh Dineen, added: "The club is extremely disappointed that our supporters have been let down at the last moment by adidas, but the matter was totally out of the club's control after numerous guarantees received up until today.
"We would like to apologise to our supporters and we are currently in discussion with adidas regarding a new delivery date for adult home shirts.''
Supporters who have pre-ordered online will be given priority on stock when it arrives. However, those wishing to receive a refund or exchange should email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be dealt with swiftly.
The new Cwmdu internet direct warehouse, Unit 10, Cwmdu Industrial Park (off Carmarthen Road) will still be open on Saturday from 9am - 6pm.
