A company that had no doubts about England winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar suffered huge losses after printing as many as 18,000 commemorative T-shirts in advance.
British media Somerset Live reported on the 14th (Korean time), “A football fan entrepreneur is suffering from being eliminated after making clothing to commemorate England’s victory.”
England lost 1-2 to France in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Qatar World Cup held at the Al Bite Stadium in Alkor, Qatar at 4:00 am on the 11th. Harry Kane (30, Tottenham) scored an equalizer with a penalty kick in the second half, but missed the second penalty kick and drank the bitter cup of defeat.
England, who finished in first place in Group B with 2 wins and 1 draw, won particularly well against Iran (6-2) and Wales (3-0). England defeated Senegal 3-0 in the quarterfinals, but ended up meeting their fateful rival France.
Carl Baxter, who runs a distribution company in Dorset, southwest England, sold T-shirts with the phrase ‘ENGLAND CUP WINNER 2022’ written on them during the World Cup. A vendor accepted an offer to sell. “I was very impressed with the performance of the England national team in Qatar,” Baxter said. 안전놀이터
However, as a result, England did not even reach the semifinals, and this product also became useless. It lost value because it did not win the World Cup.
Originally scheduled to sell for 29.99 pounds (about 48,000 won), the company lowered the price to 9.99 pounds (about 16,000 won). It is the so-called ‘cleaning up of tears’. According to the media, Boxster could lose 360,000 pounds (approximately 577 million won).
“I don’t know what to do with the 18,000 T-shirts that England said won,” Baxter confessed. “I want to appeal to England fans to buy this shirt and keep it as a piece of history and remind them of how well England did throughout the tournament.”
