Blackpool are a more famous club than the size of the club would suggest. The illustrious history of the club and it's association with Stanley Matthews carry the Seasiders' reputation further than clubs and towns of a similar size. They are also one of only a handful of British teams to play home games in orange shirts and as a result look more distinctive than some of their peers. This shirt had a strange history as it was originally manufactured with a different sponsor on the chest only for it to be replaced mid season. It looks strange for the shirt to be manufactured and sponsored by two different sportswear companies even if they are both part of the same group of companies.
