Club Statement | DC Comics

Some clarification on recent articles you may have read in the media...

Valencia Club de Fútbol wish to clarify the following:

1. In 2012, Valencia CF applied to the Office of Harmonisation of the Internal Market (OAMI) for trademark registration of a new bat design, to be used for a line of casual clothing. During the registration process, DC Comics filed an objection to our trademark registration. There is no lawsuit, nor any claim by DC Comics against VCF.

2. Without prejudice to the aforementioned matter, the new bat design is currently not used - and is not planned for future use - by the club.

3. For purposes of clarification, a bat has been incorporated into the Club's official crest since 1922. The official crest and the bat have been trademark registered worldwide and their use has not been subject to any legal challenge.
