The Ligue 1 side apologised to supporters after incredibly spelling the club's name wrong on this season's shirts.

The crests on the latest jerseys were mistakenly printed as "Montpelier", an embarrassing error the club is now seeking to correct.

"Montpellier has indeed been the victim of a logo error on a series of shirts put on sale," an official club statement read.

"The logo provider made two sets, one with a fault. They are of aware of their error and are committed to solving the problem."

Montpellier has given supporters the option to trade their badge, trade their shirt or collect a refund.

While fans will be happy to gain an 'L', they will be hoping their team can get a 'W' at home to Nantes on Sunday (AEST).
