Having had a bit of a look for Zebra Claims online I can't really seems to find much. The only thing I can find is this website for a company in Oldham and then a record of a company in Stockport with a net worth of £95. That logo certainly doesn't seem to appear anywhere. :shrug:

EDIT: Having done some more complex detective work (Googling Zebra Finance instead of Zebra Claims) I have unearthed another company who amongst other things deal with season tickets. That would make more sense.

If they do them, the only reason we had them in recent seasons was lack of sponsors wasn't it?

It's all a bit odd. The site has numerous spelling mistakes and their phone number is for a taxi company. Also, The site was set up in the last 24 hours.

Maybe Venky's have created a shadow company to pump in millions in sponsorship in an attempt to thwart FFP. :paranoid:

Or maybe the shirt is a hoax. :D

I've got to say, the logo looks like it was designed by a dingle and googling the mobile number leads to one result - a porn webcam site.

Fairly sure that's a fake.

No copyright information. Two different landline contact numbers, neither or which have the correct area code. Their google maps defaulted to London.

I also doubt a company would announce a sponsorship with a football club before the club do.

So the website is fake, if the image is also fake then it's very well done.

The person who set up the website registered the domain last year and is also a director of www.zebrafinancialclaims.co.uk.

Baffling to say the least.

New kit is getting unveiled tonight with a new sponsor. That new Zebra Corp is our main sponsor.

So on the day that Manchester United announce a £750m sponsorship deal Adidas, Blackburn Rovers announce as their main sponsor an unknown hearing loss claims company with no presence bar a rather odd website. :yeahright:

Looks like we didn't do any research on the company. Their "Head of Claims" got suspended for 4 years in 2011, so he could be practising illegally.
