The overall retail and leisure sector in the UK will not get the boost that it anticipated from the World Cup as Britons, rather uncharacteristically, are less enthusiastic about the upcoming tournament, according to a new report.
 
Online marketing firm Webloyalty says that the forecasted average spend among football fans on World Cup merchandise is, on average, £16 ($27, €20) a head as 78% of England fans don´t plan to buy the national squad´s replica shirt.
 
The population almost unanimously thinks that the shirt is too pricey after it sparked fury when manufacturers Nike retailed it at £90. Regardless, over three-quarters say they would not buy the shirt no matter the price.

I’ll be honest, I’m a rugby fan. You’re more likely to find me at Twickenham than the Emirates. But there is something about the World cup.It is the biggest sporting event on earth, attracting more than 3.2 billion television viewers – or 46 per cent of the global population – during South Africa 2010. And that was up 8 per cent on television viewers of Germany 2006. Even on Twitter, the biggest event in December 2013 was the World Cup draw, beating out Sochi, the Ashes and #RIPMendela.
 
So it should be a no brainer to sponsor, right? The association should be marketing gold dust. Exposure to half the global population. Social media guaranteed. Opportunities to exclude competing brands. But event sponsorship, particularly something as scared as the World Cup, is a tricky thing to get right.

Undoubtedly the most important thing that has happened this week is the unveiling of the new AS Roma kit for the 2014/15 season. With a distinctively Italian two-button collar, gold hoop cuffs, and subtle multi-texture material offering a pinstriping effect, it is the bollocks del cane.
 
There´s not one child in England who would do up the top button on that kit, but in Italy, where children go to the tailor as often as they go to the barber, it´ll be done up with pride in the Stadio Olimpico.
