From RN:

Did you buy an United football shirt from JJB Sports or All England Sports from 2000/1 and 2001/2?

If you did then you probably paid at least £10-£15 too much for it. The price was fixed by a group of sports companies which was illegal. Since then the Office of Fair trading has successfully prosecuted the companies who included JJB Sports. Now the Consumers' Association (Which?), working in conjunction with the lawyers, Leigh Day &Co., would like to get the money back for all the fans who paid inflated prices.

Which? will take full responsibility for the court case and so any fan who has lost out in this way can have their claim for their loss brought without any worries about having to go to Court or costing them any money.

For legal reasons Which? can only sue JJB Sports for the damages to consumers. Clearly, the events took place some while ago, but the scam that took place means that JJB and the other shops made many millions out of ordinary fans and Which? is determined to ensure that they do not get away with it.

Regardless of whether or not you have kept a receipt or other proof of purchase we would still like to hear from you if you bought such a shirt from JJB or All England Sports.
