These are the new FC Twente 08/09 home, away and 3rd football kits made by Diadora who signed a 4 year deal with the Dutch club which is managed by the former England boss Steve McClaren.

The new shirts are co-designed by the FC Twente supporters who included their new stadion “Grolsch Veste” as a watermark on the shirt, making it a true collectors item.

Athletic Bilbao unveiled the new home and away kits for the 2008-2009 season with new sponsor Petronor. 

Equally debated, is the origin of the club colours. Although their first colours were blue and white stripes, in 1910 they switched to red and white stripes. There are three schools of thought about why this occurred.

The most common theory is that they were changed out of deference to Sunderland and Southampton, cities where the original British founders were from. Another is that an Athletic member was sent to the Britain to buy a batch of blue and white tops but could not find any and returned with red and white tops instead.

fulham_08_09_away_nike_football_shirt.jpg

Fulham’s new 08/09 away kit made by Nike was launched by the team during the pre-season match against Crystal Palace.

This season’s away kit follows the Club’s traditional away colours of red and black. The new away kit can be pre-ordered for delivery before 14th August.


To celebrate the release of Bayern's 08/09 away and third kits by adidas, the club's marketing department decided to push the envelope and provide the media with an electrifying dance recital that would easily rival that of any high school drama club:

The Urban Backpacker mailed us this Bayern Munchen football shirt musical.

TUB added: I love the dead silence at the end of the performance, as though everyone in the room collectively thought to themselves, 'what the fuck was that?'

bolton_wanderers_08_09_away_reebok_kit.jpg

Bolton Wanderers will wear the new 08/09 away kit at Prenton Park tonight when Gary Megson's men take on Tranmere Rovers in a pre-season friendly.

Like the new 08/09 home shirt, the new away shirt also integrates 'PLAYDRY' technology into the fabric, a moisture management system that helps keeps the body cooler, drier and more comfortable.

The new 08-09 away shirt will go on sale on Thursday 14 August in time for the 2008/09 Barclays Premier League season.

Designed and produced by the Club's sponsor and sportswear company Reebok, the new shirt is priced at £39.99 for adult short-sleeved and £29.99 for junior short-sleeved.

They will go on sale from August 1 without a sponsors’ name. Fans buying the ‘blank’ shirts were promised a sponsors’ logo would be ‘welded’ to the shirts free at a later date.

zanzibar_08-09_home_hummel_kit.jpg

This is the Zanzibar national team home shirt for the 08/09 season made by Hummel.

The national team of Zanzibar is controlled by the Zanzibar Football Association. Zanzibar is not a member of FIFA and is only an associate member of CAF, and is therefore not eligible to enter either the World Cup or the African Nations Cup.

FIFA claims that Zanzibar comes under the auspices of Tanzania, and is therefore represented at international level. However till 1964, Zanzibar was a full CAF member, but was never able to qualify to African Cup Of Nations

We made a trip to the city of Zwolle to visit the Jaap Stam Testimonial match yesterday which turned out to be a very nice, but wet event.

Jaap Stam played his testimonial match in the FC Zwolle stadium and a number of big names from Dutch football were there: Stam’s Star-team (The Holland WC 98 Team) played Ajax, coached by Marco van Basten , while the 98 star team was coached by Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.
