UPDATE: "A Disgrace": Givova Buys Another Brand's Kit After Failure to Supply Enough for Venezuela vs Catalonia Friendly

Update: Venezuelan ESPN commentator Richard Mendez has shared more details on the Givova shirts used last night. They were produced by another brand and then bought and modified by Givova, who removed all logos and the tag before printing on their own ones and Venezuela's.


From what we can see, the brand is Quechua, of Decathlon. In fact, we were able to track down the exact shirt used by Givova. It's called the MH500 hiking shirt and retails at €10.



Meanwhile, striker Salomón Rondón has joined his team-mate Rincón in demaning Givova to leave, tweeting out this:



Following today's friendly vs Catalonia, Venezuela midfielder Tomás Rincón has lashed out against controversial kit supplier Givova on Twitter.



After that had already been trouble about the color of Givova's Venezuela kit in January, it appears that the Italian brand was unable to supply kits for the game and had to resort to buying makeshift ones and had the logos and lettering printed on them at last minute.



Rincón's tweet reads "We demand full respect from Givova, to our national jersey and all members of the team. Not having kits ready for the game and having to use random ones is ridiculous, they are a disgrace."


This can easily be spotted on the pictures from the game, which show a different shirt from the one presented by the brand before.
