The club will offer a 'trade in' value for the 2014/16 Puma away kit in exchange for the new Nike away shirt...
Coventry City Football Club will offer supporters who purchased last season’s away shirt a discount on the 2015/16 away strip.
The white away kit was earmarked to be worn by City for the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons but the club has changed kit supplier to Just Sport Group, which will see the home and away strips manufactured by Nike.
The new designs are set to be revealed this month but chief executive Steve Waggott said the club recognised the issue around last season’s away kit and would offer money off to anyone wanting to ‘trade it in’ for the new away kit.
He said: “The full intention was to wear the current away kit for two seasons just as we have the current home kit but, because of the change of supplier, it means that’s simply not possible.
“We are very excited by the new partnership that will see our kits manufactured by Nike and we believe supporters will be too.
“But it’s only right that we recognise that supporters buying the white kit thought it was going to last for two seasons rather than one. We are working through all the detail around prices for the new kit at the moment and that will help to shape the discount we offer. I’d advise fans to keep their receipt or have some form of proof of purchase for when we announce the offer.”
He added: “I am confident that the new deal with Just Sport Group will see an even better service on offer to our fans through our retail department.”
