Brazil's football team will no longer wear the country's official shirt with CBF Badge after the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) accepted a request from the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB). 

Brazil's players complained on Saturday after being told they would play the rest of the Olympic games without their traditional badge on their shirts.

The badge, which consists of five stars representing the five World Cups won by Brazil above the letters CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation), has been removed because it contravenes Olympic policy, officials said.

Just like every year at the start of the new season Boca’s players received their new home and away kits. It will be worn for the first time this Sunday in the match against Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy.

Nike’s new design incorporates the latest technology, combining for the first time two fabrics that will give the shirt an ultra-light quality, a better fit to the body and will afford easier breathing to its wearer. These technologies are the DYNAMIC-FIT with a pop-corn pattern used at the front of the shirt and a  mesh fabric applied to its back.

The three stars representing the Intercontinental Cups won by the club have been preserved and will appear at the  back side of the neck. Like in previous jerseys the official shirt will feature in its interior the slogan “Every day I love you more”.

Queen's Park unveiled the new 08/09 Home kit made by Joma in their club shop.

Queen's Park, also known as "The Hoops" and "The Spiders", were founded on 9 July 1867, and are the oldest in Scottish Football. Queen's Park had soon developed its own code of rules for football.

The club has historically resisted professionalism in the game; former professional players from other clubs were not allowed to play for Queen's Park and in 1890 the club refused to join the newly-formed Scottish League.

The club also feared the League would dominate the game and cause the demise of smaller clubs. Six of the founder members of the League soon went out of existence. Queen's Park were however being left behind by the League, so in 1900 they took up the opportunity to enter.

Partick Thistle and Greaves Sports  unveiled the club’s new pink and grey hooped 08/09 Puma away kit – a first for Scottish football – which will debut when worn by the players against Forfar on Tuesday evening. 

The strip is the first ever pink jersey in Scottish club football and was chosen by the club and Greaves Sports to help set the Jags apart from their rivals.

European teams such as Benfica, Palermo and Juventus have all worn pink strips in recent years but, Scotland’s Rosebery strip aside, the trend to ‘think pink’ has yet to hit these shores.

Club Brugge played in a new Cup outfit in the friendly match against Lille. In collaboration with sponsor PUMA, there's been a special chocolate brown outfit designed in honour of the 40th birthday of PUMA's oldest football boot, the PUMA King. 

The anniversary of the PUMA King football boot is celebrated with 8 Puma sponsored clubs in Europe, including Club Brugge. Next to the kits each team has a special collection of extensive fan wear.

Each garment has two stripes, inspired by Johan Cruyff. During the World Cup of 1974 Cruyff wore Puma football boots and refused to wear the Adidas 3-stripe on his kit because of his sponsorship deal with puma. Cruyff ended up playing with 2 stripes on his shoulders that tournament.

Club Brugge also have the new 08/09 home and away kits made by Puma available in their shop
