      But then you see old Newcastle shirts in Sports Direct for 5.
      Clubs and manufacturers don't want to have leftover stock. So better to have pessimistic forecasts on demand and adjust from there.

        That's true Vlad,,,, but the real manufacturing costs are probably still covered by that 5 fee

          If I was a manufacturer I'd want to get as much of my stock out there as possible for something like replica kit. It's dirt cheap to make kit and getting your brand on a shirt that people wear is good especially when brands change so frequently.

            You only have so much capacity, as a manufacturer, to get shirts made for the start of the European season.
            So if Umbro make twice as many Ipswich shirts for their first season back in the PL, it means you have to cut production of some other team. Or you try and stagger the production so some teams get their stock earlier or later in the summer.
            As much as production can be subcontracted you still have issues such as quality control amongst others that means a sportswear manufacturer can't just produce countless shirts.
