The news now raises questions into what the team will wear on their jersey’s for Sunday’s clash with Hull.

This is of course the second time this has happened to the Hammers. Back in 2008, the club’s shirt sponsor XL collapsed, leaving some 80,000 holiday makers stranded overseas and disrupting the travel plans of even more.

West Ham were forced to suspend all sales of their home shirts, removing all branding from the front, but having to play with a square of tape over the front until they could complete the process.

Alpari’s collapse is not the first time a former sponsor of a Premier League club has gone under, with both AIG (Manchester United’s shirt sponsor) and Northern Rock (Newcastle United) crumbling themselves.

It now remains to be seen as to what West Ham will do about their shirts before this weekend’s clash.
