Paddy Power, an Irish bookmaker and online betting site, found itself in the headlines last month after announcing that Huddersfield Town's hideous new kits (which featured Paddy Power’s logo superimposed diagonally across the front) were a hoax and that Huddersfield’s actual jersey next season will have no visible sponsorship at all.
This marketing ploy is part of Paddy Power’s ”Save Our Shirt Campaign," in which the company has offered to sponsor clubs at similar rates to other sponsors, but promises to keep the company logo off the jersey and instead place advertisements in the team's programs and on their LED boards.
Their promotional video sums it up quite nicely!
