I may have missed a statement from the club regarding this issue, but I saw this article which might explain the delay in the new kit for this coming season.

There was a similar piece on Radio 5Live this morning.

Yes, I saw that on the news this morning and I've just added my tuppence half penny's worth at the end of the Crawley PSF thread.
Fingers crossed, our shirts are already on their way from Italy. A previous statement by the club said they would be available on the Monday after the first home game v Solihull Moors. Spare a thought for Stockport County as their new replica shirts ( Puma ) aren't expected to arrive till November due to supply chain issues !

Maybe the club should use them for 2 seasons in that case as we've lost 2 months in wearing them.
Shame as they are such an important shirt for so many this year.

IF the delay is due to a supply chain issue, it really is out of the club’s hands.

You probably would this year if you had invested in having names woven into the shirt.
Normally the delay wouldn't be an issue, it's just this year's, especially with the 1 year thing , that people had been really looking forward to wearing it during the summer.
It is what it is, as one famous old manager once said ....a lot.

Surely the club have communicated and stated why there is a delay in your shirt though, right?

I haven't noticed any communication from the club about the shirts, which I really think they should soon.
A couple of fans have said when they think the shirts will be here but personally I want an update from the club on what's happening with them.

There has been zero comms from the club about anything.
A few updates from Mark but without saying much other than what we already know.
