Written by: Tushaar Sachdeva
We are yet to ascertain if this is an April fools joke or the Cottagers are really intend to do it.
In the Tuesday night game against Watford, Fulham FC will create history in the Premier League by wearing a different set of kit numbers, the first time in the league's history. They are going to adopt double-digits on every shirt.
"One of the Club's core values is to be pioneers in everything we do and, after much deliberation and consultation, it was agreed that adding a zero to precede every squad number from 1-9 would adhere to and promote that pioneering spirit." the official statement read.
"In addition to adding consistency across all player shirts, we're pleased to find ourselves in a groundbreaking position in that Fulham are the first club to adopt such a trend."

but what if it is true? Only time will tell
This is not the first time when a top division club is going to experiment with squad numbers. Recently in February 2019, Chilean club O'Higgins F.C debuted a new pink away kit but the colour of the strip wasn't actually the big talking point.

Chilean club O’Higgins has been the victim of (by far) the worst sponsorships deal in the history of sponsorships.
Being sponsored by McDonalds the numbers on the back of the kits are fries...

They had a new sponsor and instead of their logo being put on the front, they've struck up the most creative and groundbreaking partnership.
