Over the weekend Sports Team revealed that their equipment had been stolen ahead of their performance at Manchester's Neighbourhood festival.

The London-based group were due to perform at Manchester's Neighbourhood festival on Saturday (12 October).

On Saturday morning, the band shared an image of someone stealing their gear from the back of their van. Sports Team wrote, "This prick and his mate have just robbed all our guitars, pedals and keys out the back of the van. If someone sees anyone selling eight guitars by the millennium dome give us a shout. Not sure what's happening with Neighbourhood today, will try to find a way to play."

Shortly after, the band shared a list of their equipment, and asked fans to keep an eye out on eBay and forums.

Despite their gear being stolen, Sports Team still managed to perform at Neighbourhood festival on Saturday (12 October). They wrote on Twitter, "Just to reiterate we haven't pulled out of Neighbourhood festival - apparently some conflicting reports down that way. Stage time is 8:00pm though (not 8:30) Big big thanks to all the friends and strangers who have offered to lend us gear. Really appreciated."

Yesterday (13 October), Sports Team revealed, "No updates from police yet, but fingers crossed."

Last month Sports Team revealed new single "Fishing".
