Ligue 1 Side To Donate Jerseys To American Town After Spelling Error

Ligue 1 Side To Donate Jerseys To American Town After Spelling Error
By Daniel Kelly

Former Ligue 1 champions Montpellier have had to ditch a batch of their new jerseys, after the club crest misspelled the name of the team.

Eagle-eyed fans saw that the name of the team was wrong on the crest, with only one L, instead of two on the club logo.

Last week, the club's President Louis Nicollin announced the the club would refund any fans who bought the offending jerseys, or they would be offered an exchange for a jersey with the proper kit.

Some fans have decided to keep the kits, as they could become collector's items in the years to come.

While the error has caused embarrassment to those at the club, they have found an ingenious way to donate the offending kits.

On Tuesday afternoon, Nicollin announced that the jerseys were to be donated to the city of Montpelier in Vermont. The American town is spelt the same way as the bad batch of jerseys.

With a population of under 8,000, Montpelierites will be able to grab hold of the jerseys in the coming weeks. It looks like a little corner of Vermont in the north-east of the country could become a Ligue 1 stronghold this Autumn.
