Wigan are letting fans vote on next year's home jersey

Fans can go in to the retail store to vote (smart...likely to buy something while they're there!)

Shame none of them look like a Wigan jersey

IIRC thats years alternative was that same except with black sleeve. Maybe they ran out of this years batch and reused a few old ones

(happens all the time in Reserves, but it would be pretty amateur if it actually happened in First Grade...)

Nope.

Here is this years:

Sleeves are the same. Are the angle of the main sponsor (Southern Radiology jumped on later in 2015 and it was angled as well), and the different sponsors at bottom of collar and back of jersey.

i can't get the image up but it looks like Canterbury have new collars for next year, unless it's a one off. Seen it on the new Irish rugby jerseys for next year.

What type of company was McFadden and what happened to them to cancel the sponsorship?

They sold kit homes from memory and the whole company went bust before the 1990 season. The raiders wore MCFadden jerseys for 1 game only against Widness in the World CLub Challenge.

There were only a small number of jerseys made which has got to make them a serious collectors item.

I found one at a Vinnies store in Canberraa few years back. It's tight but had to buy it!

Wish every game could have a kit clash like today... both jerseys looked great..

Nice sponsor integration, no boxes, no packing tape blocking names.. etc..

Yeah - white would've been better contrast no doubt and actually fit the 2002 GF which it's a throwback to from memory. But the red jersey looked pretty good, especially with the navy shorts.
