Resource description

This case illustrates the complexity and extensiveness of cartel activity with reference to the UK replica football kit market. From the beginning of February 2000 to the end of November 2001 a total of 10 parties were implicated in price-fixing agreements. Three groups of agreements and/or concerted practices that involved adult short sleeved replica football shirts (and junior and infant replica football kit in the case of the England team) of Manchester United, Chelsea, Glasgow Celtic and Nottingham Forest Football Clubs were in operation at different time intervals. This student handout is available as a Word document of some 4 pages.
