Recreativo de Huelva fans protest over Minnie Mouse kitJuly 23rd, 2012 - 8:43 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Madrid, July 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Spanish club Recreativo de Huelva unveiled their new football kit for the current season and then all hell broke loose, over the design of the kit.
The red and white polka dotted shirt bears a strong resemblance to the cartoon character Minnie Mouse and since then the players and the club has been ridiculed no end, over the resemblance. The fans said that they were disappointed to see their players in a Minnie Mouse character outfit.
There was a big hue and cry over the kit on Twitter and some of the fans are so angry over the new design that they are going to hold a protest march in order to plead with the club officials to change the kit. However it seems that the fans have quite a task on hand as the club officials don’t think that the design is bad. On the contrary they think that the design is ‘innovative’.
The company, which designed the kits said in their defense that they got the contract to design and supply the whole kit at the very last minute and they had just 10 days to complete the order and hence, they couldn’t come up with a better design.
