Huddersfield Town fined £50,000 for PR shirt stunt

Huddersfield have been fined £50,000 after admitting a charge relating to the Football Association's kit and advertising regulations, the governing body has announced.

The Terriers were widely criticised for a sash-style shirt which bore the logo of a controversial bookmaker when they unveiled it as their new home shirt in the middle of July.

They wore the shirt in a friendly against Rochdale on July 17, with the logo appearing to exceed the Football Association's guidelines of 250 square centimetres, and were subsequently handed a misconduct charge by the governing body.

Town and the bookmaker later admitted to the stunt before the Championship club brought out a new, sponsor-free kit for the current season.
