Rochdale FC 07/08 centenary kit by Nike

A late decision by the Rochdale Footlall club on Friday afternoon has seen the club backtrack on their previous decision to finish the 2007-8 season with next year's kit following a large number of complaints by supporters.

The original decision featured in the Grimsby programme where it was announced that Rochdale be playing the final game of the season in next year's kit which would be unveiled on that day, with the kit, which may or may not be blue and black stripes, on sale after the game. It provoked great controversy straight away, but the past twenty four hours saw reports that the club were prepared to press ahead with their plans in the face of supporters' opinion. However, that has sent their messageboard into meltdown as a very large number of Dale supporters expressed their concern at the centenary kit being ditched in this way. But the club has seen sense finally, and they will continue with the popular 07/08 black and white kit until the end of the season. The new kit will now be unveiled on June 1st.

Trust statement on kit issue

Friday 18 Apr 2008

The Trust have issued a statement following the club's decision to remain with the Black and White kit for the remainder of the season.

Rochdale Supporters Trust would like to inform its members and Rochdale supporters generally, regarding this morning's statement, which was issued in respect of a near unanimous view of Dale fans on this matter.

The football club have kindly informed the Supporters Trust this afternoon, that the new kit will be launched on 1st June and the current kit will continue to be worn for the remainder of the games this season.

The Trust would like to go on record and thank Rochdale AFC, for listening to our members & fans views in making their decision.

Trust in us.

Scott Goulding

DALE SUPPORTERS TRUST - chairman

Always a good marketing ploy though, if a large manufacturer dont approach you, you get in touch with them, buy large stock of a previous seasons model and get the club crest on it. Fans are more likely to buy a kit made by the big 4 (Nike, Adidas, Puma, Umbro)
