Do I need to register my shirt?

There is an information form included in your post-purchase email for the purposes of improving our programme that we'd like you to participate in, but this is not required for the Transfer Shield. All eligible shirts that are covered under our Transfer Shield will be honoured under eligible circumstances.

What can I get as a replacement?

Fanatics will replace your shirt with a shirt of the same Club with a different player name/number, or a shirt of the same player for their new Club, availability subject to stock.

For Example: When Raheem Sterling moved from Manchester City to Chelsea, if you qualify for Transfer Shield you can have a replacement shirt of another player in the Manchester City squad, or a Raheem Sterling Chelsea shirt. Subject to stock availability, the new shirt will be the exact same type of shirt, for example, if you originally ordered a men’s home replica shirt, the shirt you'd receive would also be a men’s home replica shirt.

The shirts are subject to availability and if the same type of shirt is not available, you will be provided with an alternative option(s) by Kitbag.

Can I upgrade my replacement to a different shirt?

Upgrades are allowed. While filing your claim with our Transfer Shield support team let them know you're interested in upgrading. You will pay the difference between the amount originally paid and the upgraded shirt cost at the time of replacement.

What do I do with my old shirt?

You'll have to send your shirt back to us. Our friendly customer support team will provide you with a postal address to send your old shirt once your claim is filed. IMPORTANT: You cannot use the return label that came in your original package for any Transfer Shield claims.

Where do I find information about player movement?

Fanatics will only recognise a transfer once officially announced by the Club, or applicable league.
