2012-13 soccer kits

Recommended Posts

Tottenham: Better sponsor logo than aurasma, but the giant numbers and letters make it worse than the EPL kit. I think their change kit is pretty nice looking too. I like how the black and grey work together.

Celtic: I understand it's a throwback and it is a good throwback, but :sleeping:

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.

HAIL CELTIC

I also think it's great that the sponsor's logo is just about invisible.

I know Celtic's kit is a throwback so they really didn't have any design room there, but that just doesn't look good. Their regular kits are much better. It is nice that they were able to hide the sponsor logo for it though.

Making the logos white on white is a beautiful touch. Honestly, I think that's how all logos on all on-field apparel should be.

If that were the case, why bother putting them on at all. The reason companies pay so much is so people can see them. It's outstanding that Nike and tennent's agreed to do this for a special uniform, but team's rely too much on that revenue for it to happen much more frequently.

Oh, I don't think the Arsenal kits this year are that bad! I quite like the home kit and no one will even remember the road kit in a few years!

Absolutely brilliant video, all class, and the way a club with 125 years of history should present a throwback kit.

Gorgeous kit as well.

I'd love Newcastle Brown back on the kits, but I think it's power company. I just have that hunch.

I don't recall this kind of announcement before, announcing the end of a sponsorship before a new one is found, half way through a season. I don't quite get what Newcastle are up to.

But they announced that with a replacement lined up. I can't recall a team announcing one sponsor was going without their being a replacement lined up.

Personally I am not entirely convinced about that. But still it seems strange to announce someone won't be sponsoring your team next season. I'd imagine there are reasons but it seems odd.

Well Virgin Money will stay on the kits for the remainder of the year, so they don't have to release a new shirt in the New Year. I think we should be hearing about the new sponsor any day now. Possibly even before tomorrow's Europa League game.

Actually, Newcastle were the last team that had a sponsor change right in the middle of the season - last season, to be precise. From August to December, Newcastle wore Northern Rock. on their kits, as they had since 2003.

Then, Virgin Money bought out Northern Rock., in the middle of the season, Newcastle switched kit sponsors.

I'm just hoping it's not Sports Direct.

That wasn't actually a change of sponsor, it was a rebrand BY the sponsor after The Virgin Group bought Northern Rock from public ownership, so Northern Rock didn't exist any more. It wasn't a different sponsor, it was the same sponsor with a different name.

If a league or the NCAA were to, for example, make a rule that said all manufacturer logos had to be tonal, then all the companies would be in the same boat. Obviously they'd want to have their logo on there rather than not (even if it's not very visible). If the best they can do is have it the same color as the shirt, then that's how it would have to be, and it would be glorious for the viewers. I'd much rather have massive sideline/on-screen ads or logos than ads/logos on the uniforms.
