Almost 15,000 Juventus fans have signed a petition for the black patch beneath the Jeep logo on the club’s new home shirt to be removed.
Juve confirmed the patch would return to their home jersey for next season, prompting not only one supporter to take matters into his own hands by creating a Change.org petition to have the strip alternated but also 11,300 to sign it.
“It seemed that with the 17-18 home shirt, the use of a sponsor patch on Juventus kits was finally abandoned,” it read.
“Well, from what appear to be the official leaks of the shirt next season, it seems Adidas and Juventus have inexplicably decided to retrace their steps, re-proposing it for the next season.
“The general discontent hasn’t been slow to arrive, and most of its feedback has tended to be negative.
“We ask Adidas and Juventus to review their idea and use the same typology used on the 17-18 shirts in order to avoid an excessive loss of potential buyers. #noPatch.”
