(the Consumers' Association) to pursue the organisation representative claim under Section 19 of the Enterprise Act 2002 against JJB Sports on behalf of consumers who bought England or Manchester United football shirts in 2000 and 2001. The claim was launched on 8 February 2007 once the House of Lords refused JJB leave to appeal against the Court of Appeal judgment confirming the OFT's 2003 finding of competition law infringement (price fixing with Sports Soccer and other retailers facilitated by the manufacturer Umbro).
