30th November 2018 - Supporters Club branded clothing update
Last night we received the below email from Chelsea, effectively providing the club with just 1 day's notice to provide a response. I am not happy with the way that this has been handled by Nike, and I also feel that the late receipt of payment by Supporters Clubs should not have originally been a valid reason for CFC to delay its submission of the total order to Nike because if individual Supporters Clubs miss payment deadlines then others who do pay on time should not have to be inconvenienced as a result. My personal view is that HDCSC just cancels the order and refunds back to members all payments that have been made - however the opportunity is available for all members who have previously ordered club clothing to now confirm which of the below options they would like applied to their own individual order. As a new order is now needed, the opportunity is presumably also available for new orders to be added should any members wish to do so.
Could all members on the below original order list (and any new additions) therefore please text back before noon tomorrow 1st December with your stated preference, and if no reply is received then by default I will request that CFC cancels & refunds your original order. The email from CFC reads as follows, which is followed below by the list of those members who originally placed orders :
We first would like to apologise and to thank you for your patience’s regarding the issues that you have encountered with the supporter’s club merchandise orders.
As discussed at the recent supporter’s club meeting the orders was paced later than expected this was due to some late payments.
Since the orders were placed, we have now been informed that some of the merchandise in not available.
Therefore, we would like to provide you with the following options.
Nike navy polo shirts can be supplied in Chelsea Blue (Royal Blue) – delivery estimated late January
Nike hoodie navy sweatshirts will be a plain sweat shirt without the zip - delivery estimated late January
Nike original Navy polo shirt – delivery June
Nike original zip hoodie sweatshirt – delivery June
Navy polo shirt – delivery estimated early January
Navy zip hoodie sweatshirt – delivery estimated early January
Please note the above two items are non-branded items and not Nike product but are of the similar quality.
All of the above are subject to availability at the time of when the order is placed.
We can refund you for your order.
If you can please advise which would be your preferred option by Sunday 1 December.
Once again we apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
Kind regards, CFC"
