Middlesbrough’s kit manufacturer Errea have revealed that the club’s new 08/09 home and away shirts are resistant to water and other liquids thanks to unique technology that utilises silver and titanium in the shirt fabric.

Errea’s marketing manager Fabrizio Taddei believes supporters will be amazed by the technology too.

“Middlesbrough are the first and only football club in the world to have utilized this unique material in a football shirt,” said Fabrizio.

“The new shirts are not only fully waterproof but are also resistant to other liquids,” he continued.

Errea are at the forefront of incorporating new scientific breakthroughs into the manufacture of sportswear and utilised ‘nanotechnology’ to make the water-resistant nature of Boro’s new shirts possible.

Nanotechnology is an emerging science which involves working with matter on an ultra-small scale, using individual atoms and molecules.

Fabrizio explains: “Whereas other clothing is often made waterproof through a coating process, tiny particles of titanium and silver have been woven into the yarn of Boro’s new shirts to create a unique fabric.

“We are confident that the new technologies utilised in the manufacturing of the shirts will be appreciated by the players and the supporters.”

Everton’s kit manufacturer Umbro decided to pull the original set of 08/09 shirts after suffering problems with its producers in the Far East. It is understood there were subsequent quality problems with kits produced for Everton and two other Premier League clubs. 

Umbro would not comment specifically on the quality of the first batch of Everton strips, although the club promised fans that kits going on sale this Thursday would be “of the highest possible standard”. 

An Umbro spokesman said: “The Everton kit delay was due to logistical issues in the Far East.

“We are 100% dedicated to providing clubs and supporters with the highest-quality kit and this will always be our number one priority.

“We produce millions of licensed products per year and take every step to ensure the highest-quality product is delivered to clubs and supporters.”

Adidas and Milan launched the new official home, away and 3rd kits and the new integrated communication project "Sign for AC Milan"

New AC Milan signing Ronaldinho will wear the number-80 shirt this season, the club said on Monday.
The Brazilian forward, twice world player of the year, chose the number because it corresponds with the year of his birth.

Ronaldinho usually wears the number-10 shirt but that is already taken by veteran Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf and Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed that no-one at the club would force a player to relinquish a shirt number.

"We've never asked a player to give up his number and we won't do it this time," said Galliani. "That would show a lack of respect. The 10 is Seedorf's, he has it and no-one has tried to convince him to give it up to Ronaldinho."

The club's shirt manufacturer Adidas said they have already received 11,000 pre-orders for replica Ronaldinho shirts.
