A Stand Against Counterfeiting: The Napoli-Barcelona Incident

Hello, football fans and KitLegit community! We’ve got something important to discuss today. It’s about an incident that recently took place in Naples, Italy.

The Finance Police of the Provincial Command of Naples, in their ongoing efforts against counterfeiting, identified a factory in the municipality of Pagani. This wasn’t just any factory, but one that produced thousands of counterfeit products and gadgets. These items bore counterfeit signs and logos related to the Champions League match between Napoli and Barcelona.

Here at KitLegit are all about authenticity. We believe in the real deal, the genuine article. So, when we read about incidents like this, it really hits home.

This factory, over 600 square meters in size, was churning out fake merchandise. From scarves and uniforms to hats echoing the legendary footballer Maradona, these items were destined for resale near the stadium and in areas frequented by fans.

Three workers were found working off the books, and the owner of the company has been reported to the Nocera Inferiore Prosecutor’s Office. The seized goods, if released on the market, would have yielded an illicit gain estimated at over 300,000 euros.

This incident is a stark reminder of the rampant counterfeiting problem in the sports merchandise industry. It’s a blow to the trust and authenticity that we, as fans, place in the products we buy to support our favorite teams.
