Yes - that seems weird. Why not wait until the opposition have named their team?

We will be overwhelmed with this sort of thing from across the Atlantic soon - watch out for the chlorinated roast chicken flavour crisps.

Meanwhile I'll stick with my Brexit Chess Set https://brexitchess.myshopify.com/produ ... chess-game complete with Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg Bishops.

And the Brexit one is cheaper as well.

""Symbolic Empty Podium", indeed"

I just looked at the US advert again, they do say they'll supply replacement pieces when the protagonists are confirmed.

"watch out for the chlorinated roast chicken flavour crisps"

Happily, crisp flavours (whatever the flavour) are usually vegetarian!

I took "you will be notified to complete your set" to mean pieces will be available, but not necessarily free.
