Man receives Wolves shirt with upside down badge, club sends upside down apology letter

Brooks Peck

Wolverhampton Wanderers fan Richard Gough ordered himself a marked down shirt from the club. When it arrived, he saw why it was probably marked down: the badge was upside down. So, he tweeted the club's official account to alert them of the error.

The next day, the club responded to Gough's tweet and displayed a great sense of humor about the situation with a letter from Wolves' head of marketing printed upside down on the club's stationery.

The letter, which pokes fun at the club getting relegated from the Championship last season, reads:

Dear Richard

I'm very sorry to hear you've received a shirt with an upside down badge on it.

Although we've been riding on the crest of a wave recently, in terms of results, we pride ourselves on the quality of our shirts and we certainly don't get a badge of honour on this occasion.

That said, the world can sometimes look better upside down — last year's league table being just one example.

Please accept our apologies, along with a ticket (printed the right way up) to our home game versus Shrewsbury on the 15th March. We'll also take you into the Dressing Room to meet the players before the match, where you can get both shirts signed.

Thanks, as always, for your support.

Best regards

Matt Grayson


So Richard gets a one of a kind shirt (as well as a proper one), a free ticket to an upcoming match and a trip to the dressing room all for £12. Now that's a bargain.
