A spokesman for Love the Sales said: "The Love the Sales data team have calculated the popularity of all 368 kits that have been released by the 92 English Football League clubs. This includes the home, away, reserve and goalkeeper jerseys for each team.

"This year, Huddersfield shocked football fans by unveiling a shirt with a ‘Miss Universe’ style sash across the chest.

"It turned out to be a PR ploy by sponsors, Paddy Power. Huddersfield later revealed the real kit without a sponsor. The whole campaign was aimed at raising awareness of too many sponsors being added to team jerseys.

"However, the PR stunt had a huge impact on the ex-Premiership team’s shirt sales. Demand for the shirt increased by an incredible 1,904%.

"As a result, Huddersfield’s home shirt went from the 26th most popular in 2018, to 6th hottest shirt this season."
