Letter Of Complaint

Hello, 

  I am writing to you in regards to the new 2012-2013 kit, I would like to express my anger with the current sponsorship. Now I am aware of the premier league rules and that child's shirts aren't allowed to have the the genting casino logo on as it is a casino and company's such as alcoholic drinks and betting shops are not aloud to advertise of the front of children's shirts, this is why I am angry, firstly why has a sponsor been chosen that cannot be put on the front of the children's shirt as I'm sure you know that children want the replica shirt that is the same as what the players are wearing more than anything. Another reason why I am more confused than angry is that when attending our last home game of a dismal season last year, that when walking around the club shop, there were baby shirts and young children's shirts with the genting casinos sponsor on them. 

Now I am a big fan of the new shirts and I think they look very good but was disappointed to see what it looked like on the online shop with out the sponsor. 

I am a 15 year old boy who is not the average height for a child of that age as I am of the smaller size, and I have been a season ticket holder at Aston villa football club for the last 6 years and have enjoyed these years with the exception of the previous season but I'm sure your aware I'm not the only villa fan angered about last year. Now im almost 16 and as I said I don't look that age but I have many friends who would be wearing the adults shirts therefore they can have the sponsor on there shirts but just because they are taller than me doesn't make them any more mature, therefore just because I'm smaller it doesn't mean I am going to be influenced by a betting sponsorship on the front of my shirt any more than they are. 

I am attending the kit launch tomorrow but at this moment in time I cannot justify spending £50 plus on my shirt to include printing, as well as another £50 for my brothers shirt, we will then have to repeat this in a months time when the new away shirt comes out. 

This leads me onto my next point in regards to printing, now I will be getting my shirt printed but we do not know squad numbers for next year, now I know big name stars like Darren bent will remain #9 but I like to have younger players on my shirts for example Lichaj and Wiemann by I do not yet know what there confirmed number will be and also what would happen if I was to get a player like agbonlahor on my shirt and he then leaves? Will I be refunded or is it going to be blamed on me? 

 

I look forward to hearing back from you and how you are going to resolve my problem

Don't know why i took it down, I'm not ashamed of it and I felt the letter was of an ok standard

I stopped reading due to the bad grammar and spelling. For a letter of complaint you'd have thought you would have done a spell check and proof read.

I get what you're trying to say Ollie although your letter is quite hard to read. I want to get my 9 yr old nephew the shirt but as it doesnt have the sponsor on the front he won't be all that happy with it as it's not wha the players are wearing!! The last top I got him was the FXpro one, maybe they should consider putting the acorns logo on all the kids tops? Also Genting were the shirt sponsosr last season and I think it\s a 3 yr deal so you've got another season of disappointment when it comes to the kits!!!

Anyway mate, hope they get back to you with a decent response...

To be honest there is going to be a bit of a grey area with regards to your case which is unfortunate. They cant put the logo on the childrens shirts because it is illegal to do so. The club got millions of pounds from Genting so they are hardly going to reject a multimillion pounds offer on the basis that a few kids cant wear the shirt

To be honest i wish i could buy the adults version of the shirt without the logo because i hate commercial sponsorship

Yes Ollie, you will be blamed. It's your fault Barry left, it's your fault Milner left, and I've heard from a number of sources that Gabby is none too happy with you either. Will you please stop buying shirts, as I'd like us to be able to field a team this coming season.

I'm not sure I'd be that fussed but I can see your point. I'd rather the club didn't have a gambling name on the shirts at all, but without knowing the full facts and figures I can't honestly say I'd turn down the extra £X00,000's this deal may be worth above a non-gambling sponsorship.

The letter itself is reasonable except you should have written 'allowed' not 'aloud'. :winkold:

he doesnt tho..... villa have done nowt wrong..... it seems to me that his concern is that he's small for his age...... he doesnt care about the rights or wrongs of the sponsor as he wants to buy one, but it wont fit him cos he looks like Willow......... well i think villa should send him a growing machine
