Returns & Refunds
Returns for personalised product will only be accepted if the personalisation is incorrect from the receipt of order or if the product is faulty. We accept no responsibility once a replica shirt or short has been printed, in the event that a player leaves the squad and/or his squad number changes, or if the badge changes in the future. Please remember that the squad numbers that will be used in pre-season are not necessarily the final squad numbers for the upcoming season.
