Many thought is was a hoax when first reported, but the club confirmed the letter was at the request of “incumbents within the locale”.

The letter was sent to season-ticket holders who sat in one particular section of the main stand, and advised the fans that foul body odour was “impacting on the experience” of going to watch a match.

Understandably, the news is garnering a fair bit of attention online.
