JJB Sports plc has offered to pay compensation to consumers who purchased replica football kits during 2000 and 2001. The Consumer Association (now Which?) brought a damages action against JJB Sports (and others) on behalf of consumers who had purchased replica football kits based on an OFT cartel decision finding that the price of replica football kits in the UK had been fixed. On 9 January 2008, it was announced that JJB Sports had agreed to settle the case by giving up to £20 to all consumers who joined the action and purchased the relevant kits, and allowed other consumers to claim £5 to £10 if they produced the replica shirt and/or proof of purchase to a JJB Sports store. Following the settlement, Which? withdrew its action before the Competition Appeal Tribunal on 17 January 2008.
