West Ham have denied that replica kits appearing for sale on the internet are authentic reproductions of the new Reebok designs, which do not go on official sale until the summer.
Earlier in the week the following kits appeared on the Ebay auction
website, under the title 'West Ham Home/Away Shirts 2003-04'.
Priced at just £12.50, the shirts were described as 'brand
new West Ham shirts with Reebok tags'.

on Ebay earlier this week
However a spokesperson for the club has today denied that the kits in question
are authentic reproductions of the new shirts.
"We have seen the shirts in question on the web and they are not the new
kits," said the spokesperson.
"If you look closely, the blue kit is exactly the same as the kit a couple
of years ago - and that is a Fila kit."
Observant readers will also note that the fakes have the Dr.Martens sponsorship
logo on the front - whereas the club will be sponsored by internet firm Jobserve
from next season.
The club are set to launch the new kit at the 'Super Family Fun Day', which
takes place on Sunday, 27th July at Upton Park.
