Wrexham fans rage 'how is it still this bad?' as new home shirts are flogged for £225 online after pre-order glitch | The Sun

WREXHAM fans have been left raging after huge demand for their team's new home shirt saw the club's website crash.

And now some fans are flogging the replica kits for as much as £225 online.

The shirts were available for £55 under pre-order but demand saw them sell out almost instantly.

Wrexham became one of the most followed National League sides after their takeover by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in February 2021.

They narrowly missed out on promotion back to the EFL in the 2021-22 when they lost 5-4 to Grimsby in the play-off semi-final.

This season though, they were able to secure promotion to League Two as National League champions after amassing a whopping 111 points.

Their promotion to the EFL has garnered mass excitement with fans wanting to secure the first shirt they will be wearing as a Football League club since 2008.

Fans were left raging with the chaotic ordering process with some being charged for multiple orders despite not securing a shirt.

One fan tweeted: "Banking app currently telling me I have $776.58 on hold… That's because the site continues to crash and told me my order never went through."


Another said: "I have been charged six times for one shirt? Tried to contact the club shop and it's ringing out. Where is the best place to email to get refunded ASAP?"

The chaos surrounding the ordering process has seen scalpers try to sell the shirts on eBay for as much as £225.

Reacting to the growing black market for the shirts one fan said: "Well that didn't take long. Real fans missing out while scalpers make a quick profit.

"Until the club can meet the demand and have a shopping experience that actually works this will only continue to happen.

"How is it still this bad?"

The club released a statement amid the confusion, saying: "Please note, we are aware of delays on the shop website and are working on this.

"Please rest assured, orders are going through, albeit with some delays, and shirts are in stock.

"Sorry for any inconvenience."
