Mind the apologists were able to blame just sports for everything commercialrelated at the club.....

Im sorry but that today is a complete farce all round.

Looks like they have listened.

 

they have sent me an email saying orders placed between 12:30 and 13:30 have been cancelled and no money taken


apologised for the disruption panic and inconvenience,

offered a wee memento if you re-order to those affected.

 

also looks like they have changed the name of the training great from “true blue” to “royal blue”

So many errors it’s worrying that those running the club allowed this to happen.

Worst of it is, it’s no surprise!

I was a bit disappointed with the picture of the whisky glass next to souvenirs, to then find it wasn't actually for sale...

Same with the wooly hat as well...

It would be interesting to know who on the board signed off on the site prior to launch. It all seems very rushed and blatantly don't have someone with a commercial/marketing background involved.

Same for woolly hat, shown but not available. 

they could do with shutting down the website for a few days then relaunch properly.

they’ve had plenty comments and feedback

Can the season ticket holder 10% discount only be used once or can it be used for every purchase made?

View the MARINE CORE FOOTALL PANT online at Kilmarnock Football Club

"Marine Core Footall (sic) Pant"

At least Marine is correct but it should be "Corp".

I know American women talk about a "pant suit", but trousers should always be "pants". 

Looks like the descriptions were written in the same place as the garments were made. 

 

 

 

It’s the Footall bit that gets me , I honestly can’t believe what I’ve seen tonight

On reflection, I think "Marine" refers to the navy colour and "core" to the name of the range or something.

The site looks rushed. Again making the club look amateurish. Creased clothes, some wonky pictures which look like they have been taken on a phone.  Why oh why can we not get things right! 

I’m sure there will be a decent photographer out there that could have came in and taken photos of some of the players wearing the kit to show it off. Would have looked so much better.

Underwhelmed is an understatement re, the presentation and paying process...vector in the sponsor on the training gear...why...but worst of all putting the kilmarnockpie.com on  the back of the shirts will be a bit of a commercial disaster...if someones a bit portly you can just here the who ate all the pies comments....sorry Killie you've just lost a couple of shirt sales as my lads won't wear them and they are slim... 

Piss off and support Man Utd or something, you prick.

The website and training gear is s**te, but your attitude is a million times worse.

That polo looks like a charity shop number. Horrific presentation. 
Remember a comment a couple of weeks back when someone claimed the Hamilton Tarmac logo on the front of the training kits was simple but smart. It looks f**king terrible. 
The Hummel training gear is basic at best, it looks terrible in the pictures and the sponsor doesn’t help. Wouldn’t look out of place in the Amateurs.

just had another look, the badge looks like a sticker, and the collar is black! 

Legitimately embarrassing.

Why not delay until they have the required photographs, products, marketing and payment software tried & tested instead of this “wee guy selling Turkish fakes from his back bedroom” style to it? If I remember correctly as retail, this falls under Phyllis McLeish’s remit. If so, she should be embarrassed and asked what she is actually bringing to the organisation.

Boys clubs have better quality gear.

Going from fake Nike to Hummel was bad enough but this horrible low grade Hummel looks shocking.

A shambles it may be.....but it has given us one of the funniest threads in years! 

 

Yes, it has and some of the comments on Twitter are very funny, but who are we laughing at ? Unfortunately, our club which we care deeply about and it shouldn't be like this. We've been given enough assurances in the past about how things are going to improve and yet again we have failed to capitalise on what should be our most commercially important time of the year. Relations between the club and fans is probably at it's best for some time, but the board need to accept that this is a major PR failure and do their best to rectify what they can from the shambles that it is at present.

And in a year when commercial revenue is absolutely vital to the club.

What a huge feck up.

The commercial team and ultimately whoever is acting general manager should be hammered for this.

1 - the site was unable to deal with the "heavy load" of traffic.

2 - Amateur hour when it comes to modelling goods

3 - The shop should have been pulled immediately given the financial issues being caused for customers. If this was known and we as a club did nothing about it, then heads should roll.

4 - The go live had already been delayed weeks and still went live with bugs.

 

You CANNOT treat your fans as fodder. The attitude of "it's only impacted a few" is not acceptable given some customers were being charged THOUSANDS of pounds!!

Covid and Furloughed may be utilised as excuses for this messy go live but there is no excuse for negligence and lack of professionalism.

Anyone involved in any way with design of kits, training wear and websites should just be binned. Recruit a university student with no football knowledge to redesign everything as a project and you couldn’t get any worse. 
 

the club shop was awful before today so today is not really any surprise. Clowns
