The Sun on Friday are reporting the story of how Manchester United made a big screw up on the price of their brand new 2014-15 home shirt.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, eagle-eyed United fans spotted that the club had decided to slash the price of their new strips from £55 to just £22.
The 60% sale was an administrative error, however 4000 Red Devils jumped on the foul-up to buy the new kit.
Man United has since released a statement admitting the mistake:
United Direct, the Club’s Official Online Megastore, which is run by our e-commerce partner Kitbag, sent out communications which contained details of an erroneous discount code to our fans around the globe — this offer has now ended.
United Direct will honour all consumer orders placed using this discount code, an approach which is fully endorsed by the club.
