They get cheap United shirts because of glitch
Manchester United have put a smile on the faces of around 4,000 of their fans after they confirmed that they would honour all orders for the their new jersey made during a website glitch that led to a massive discount.
Eagle-eyed bargain hunters noticed on Thursday (July 24) that the club's official online store was offering the new kit for the 2014/15 season for just £22 ($46.35) - 60 per cent off the regular £55 price tag.
While the fans were left waiting for confirmation after United confirmed the glitch, the club will go through with the orders even though it could cost them more than £200,000.
A club statement released to the Mirror Online read: "United Direct, the Club’s Official Online Megastore, which is run by our e-commerce partner Kitbag, sent out communications which contained details of an erroneous discount code to our fans around the globe - this offer has now ended.
"United Direct will honour all consumer orders placed using this discount code, an approach which is fully endorsed by the Club."
