Really hope we got a good deal as this is a gamble on the clubs part

Would be great to have at least a couple of tshirts or tops available for the Christmas market, assuming were a distance off having a jersey ready to go

It says on the Playr-fit site that the jerseys are sublimated, so the sponsors etc should be dyed into the Jersey rather than stickers stuck on them.

I got a few one off jerseys made by a German company a few years ago using sublimation & if these are anything similar the quality should be very good.
Either way it'll be interesting to see what they are like.

I remain to be convinced on PF, to be fair they only got the gig late and will be under huge pressure to deliver, but seems a tall order to have gear out by mid dec.

Have some of their stuff from under age football and its not bad, some of it quite good, but took over 3 months to arrive.

Will be happy to revise opinion if they turn out good, but for now it seems a bit of a gamble by DFC in my book.

Yes, I'd be very concerned with the timeline for turning around a significant volume of new design merchandise for a new client just before Christmas. It's going to be a massive challenge for them, and a big risk for us. Hopefully they can manage it, it'd be great to have a local(ish) company involved. CX Sport jerseys were fantastic, but they had issues with fulfilment

From James Rogers "This will be followed in the New Year by a light green third strip, featuring images of Dundalk sayings from the SEEK murals around the town in the background."

This will either be amazing or very embarrassing

Limited stock so looking for pre-orders. New online shop in January. The Christmas Shop in the YDC is the only place kit will be available before Christmas.

Just curious as to why we are the only club that waits til the last minute with limited stock available. Christmas is our best opportunity to make substantial income on club gear and we are always last minute with ours. It's the same every year with every supplier not just new suppliers.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

I'd imagine this was an exceptional year due to the Umbro implosion. Would have messed any plans up they would have had.

Unless this is a T-shirt appears the new home kit has red and black trim
Looks like the picture of both jerseys doing the rounds on WhatsApp was a mock up
