Hummel, Elite, rescind Newco agreement, start proceedings

502

Hummel UK and The Elite Group issued a statement today noting they were rescinding their agreement with Rangers FC [sic.] with immediate effect, “due to the club being in material breach of contract.”  They add that they have commenced legal proceedings against the club.

The statement reads:

“Hummel UK & The Elite Group was proud to have entered into a supplier agreement with Rangers Football Club in good faith in March 2018.  We saw this as an opportunity to work together for the benefit of the club, its supporters and the Hummel brand.

“However, despite being given warranties and assurances by the Rangers board that the club was free to enter into their arrangement, it transpired that Rangers had previously signed a conflicting agreement with a third party.

“The club has therefore been unable to fulfil its obligations to Hummel & The Elite Group, which would have included the creation of a Hummel branded area within the Ibrox Megastore, along with crucial marketing activity such as perimeter advertising, player activations, and promotion on the Rangers FC website.

“Hummel UK & The Elite Group has nonetheless made payments to Rangers totalling c. £2.5m and supplied kit worth approximately £1m.  Despite doing all of this in good faith, we are now facing some public statements from Rangers which are not correct.

“We have been unable to find a way forward despite making repeated efforts to reach out to the club.  It is with regret that we have therefore rescinded our agreement with Rangers FC with immediate effect, due to the club being in material breach of contract.

“We remain willing to try and resolve matters with Rangers FC on an amicable basis.   Contrary to reports, Rangers is not owed any further payments from Hummel UK & The Elite Group at this time and we are disappointed by Rangers’ decision to commence legal proceedings in respect of these issues.  Those proceedings will not result in any payment to Rangers and are an unwelcome and unnecessary distraction for the club, its fans and Hummel.

“We have now begun our own legal proceedings against Rangers which we are very confident will result in a positive outcome so we can all move forward.”

This afternoon, Newco Rangers online store’s is selling Puma produced replica shirts from the 2017-18 season.

Next week, I plan to discuss financial matters with significant consequences for Newco.  They should not get too excited about the prospect of two Scottish entrants to the Champions League in 2021.

Also, I have had the statement since before 10:00 this morning (been in meetings since).  Curious that it has not been carried by the mainstreams.

  4. ” Those proceedings will not result in any payment to Rangers and are an unwelcome and unnecessary distraction for the club, its fans and Hummel.”

     

     

    This is helping me cope with the disappointment of their victory last night :-))

  5. This will not see the light of day in the media here or on Sevco Sports News,you cant be going bursting the feelgood bubble created by a poxy win against a team who chucked it leading by 2 goals last night .

     

    I see Ally Lament squirrelling about the SFA on the BBC, why now what is in the water?

  6. smokie their club reminds us all of CoCo,s wee car …

  7. The hands cant hit what the eyes cant see on

    Just watched the highlights from the Sevco game last night. Morelos could have had a hat trick. Braga could have scored a couple more as well, but it didn’t look as one sided an affair as I thought- maybe the editing by BT gives a false impression?

  8. Adi …I had a Perlenbacher Pils this morning …found it cleaning out my mates Bus that I,ve borrowed to pick up my new Beer Fridge /freezer thing ….it is fecking massive …awfy braw ….

     

     

    smiley am on Licher Pils this week (until it runs oot anyhows) thing

  9. THE HANDS CANT HIT WHAT THE EYES CANT SEE

     

     

    You’d need special effects and CGI never mind editing to make that game look anything but a complete chasing until the Huns scored.

     

     

    Even Alex Rae was calling it as a doing

  10. So we have legal disputes with Sports direct, Hummel and memorial walls. We also have a cold shouldered chairman.

     

     

    It’s almost like they’re a shit show.

  11. Thought the VAR decision on the penalty was very harsh. It may be the letter of the law but it was completely accidental and had no bearing on the play under way. Booking Ryan was just stupid.

     

     

    When Ntcham lost the ball just before their goal he was trying to make a quick counter attack but their player made a good tackle. Them’s the breaks.

     

     

    Great result for the Bhoys . Lot’s of people seem to be disappointed with a 1-1 draw away from home. Beggars belief really. Julienne was immense despite taking what looked like a serious knock to the face

  12. Coco de Mer is 1.98m tall and plays as a central defender for the Seychelles national team. Get him signed Peter.

    BT look to have managed it. I didn’t watch any of their game but the highlights show Morelos (unsurprisingly) missing sitters. Wonder what his value sits at now, probably a shade under £50m.

  15. Any chance of a link to the statement please? I’ve been unable to find it online and want to know that it’s genuine.

  16. Sounds like there will be no need for a Resolution this time. Celtic are on the ball. Life comes around at you quickly.

  17. On FF they are claiming its all fake news, they will never learn.

     

     

    You would think the previous experience would force them to look at things with a more critical eye but apparently not. Too busy being loyal forelock tugging subjects of her madge.

     

     

    They deserve everything they get, currently too busy hoping to draw us in the next round of the Europa, delusional doesn’t even describe it.

    No team/ player likes to be pressed hard and even fewer enjoy a physical battle, that is not a particular weakness in out team

     

     

    our midfield and central defence certainly don’t , fact.

     

     

    ………

     

     

    Well spotted, I said they like most other players don’t like it much. Negativity does my nut in what about the wonderful eduard finish, the great pen save, the outstanding fist half, jullian being great whole second half, no positives = poor analysis = what is your point?

     

    Players don’t like being pressured yes players love space to play.

  19. “This afternoon, Newco Rangers online store’s is selling Puma produced replica shirts from the 2017-18 season.”

     

     

    Sincerely hope that Puma produced a marching season top, otherwise the Klan will be going without this summer……………..

  20. so,

     

    I missed second half last night due to driving duties, but did have radio shortbread on.

     

     

    from the tone on there, and then the live updates comments on here, It was described as “a game of 2 halves”.

     

     

    so imagine my suprise when what i watched in the 2nd half was a celtic team who still created great chances, eddie and james have good shots well saved, the christe free kick inches from connecting with 3 of our players, and the mcgregor shot that he just had to pass either side.

     

     

    i didnt see us being dominated at all, or outplayed, sure their goal was some poor defending on our part, but if we had lost the game to that penalty it would have been a travesty.

     

     

    well done lennon and bhoys.

  21. Jullien was a player of whom I was not wholly convinced, despite his price tag. £7m does not buy you a class footballer these days.

     

     

    I considered him to be more of a Cult figure CB (like Bobo was) rather than a great one (like VvD and, I still think, Denayer, were).

     

     

    Last night’s performance went a long way to reassuring me that he has more in his locker than headed clearances and a few goals. He has cut out the over ambitious long passes but he has developed into a leader within the team too.

     

     

    I still worry about the slow turning circle of a 6ft 7 player but, with the exception of Big Vic and Henrik, flawless players do not tum up at CP and, in any case, Vic was not quite flawless when he first came.

     

     

    We need to evaluate players in the round rather than focus on their major weakness to define them.

     

     

    Yon Messi is not very good with his head and Ronaldo cannot take a shy or a corner.

  23. The Battered Bunnet on

    SFTB – Jullian’s pass to release Forrest for the goal was terrific. His bravery in continuing to challenge in the air unhindered by his bust bonce was impressive. And his defending on the ground was very good. MOTM for me.

     

     

    Saying that, I think he’d have given away a second penalty had the Copenhagen forward not been flagged offside. Fine lines.
