Sheffield Wednesday have won their legal dispute over the ownership of popular club acronym ‘WAWAW’.
The motto, which stands for ‘We’re All Wednesday Aren’t We’, has become part of the team’s image and has been used in promotional material and on official merchandise. However, the club were worried they would be forced to stop using the acronym as the legal rights did not belong to them.
Is Garry Monk the right man for Sheffield Wednesday?
Wednesday fan and executive box owner Paul Jennings trademarked ‘WAWAW’ in 2018, but Dom Howson has reported that the club have been successful in acquiring the ownership of the trademark.
Fans are glad to see this piece of good news but a lot are frustrated with Howson over what they thought was an update on their EFL misconduct charge. One fan has replied saying it was the ‘wrong time to tweet this’ whilst another has said the Yorkshire Live reporter has ‘put me on edge’.
