This seems to be the new Blackburn Rovers Home shirt for the 08/09 season made by Umbro. It's not officially launched as the new 08/09 shirt, but Paul Ince was showing it when he was unveiled as the new Blackburn rovers manager.

The Rovers kit have always been fundamentally the same; two team colours split across the shirt. One sleeve and one side of the shirt would be each colour. The shorts started white and the socks dark blue. Although the sock pattern and colours would change, everything else, for the most part, hasn't been touched since 1905. Since changing to white shorts in recent years, the home kits have had dark blue shorts since 1904, when they were changed for a year, then rejected and changed back.

A while ago the club has announced that Crown Paints is to be the new club sponsor as of next season 2008–09, the Lancashire based company has signed a three year deal with the club.

Atletico madrid launched their new home, away and goalkeeper kits for the 08/09 season made by Nike.

The Club was founded on 9 October 1939. A previous club was originally founded on 26 April 1903 as Athletic Club de Madrid by three Basque students living in Madrid. The founders saw the new club as a branch of Athletic Bilbao. In 1904 they were joined by dissident members of Madrid FC. They began playing in blue and white, as did Athletic Bilbao, but by 1911 they were playing in their current colours. The reason the club changed colours is not known for certain.

However one theory is that red and white striped tops were the cheapest stripes to make because the same combination was used to make bed mattresses. The left over cloth was easily converted into football shirts. Although both Athletic Bilbao and Athletic Madrid started out with blue and white stripes, the discovery of a cheaper option probably persuaded them to change. The Madrid club did it first and they became known as los colchoneros—the mattress makers.

The new 08/09 Barcelona kits were presented on Wednesday on the pitch at Camp Nou at midday with Nike and Barça have chosen to make a complete change for the home shirts with the stripes being done away with and two halves of blau and grana being introduced as a nod to the club's centenary shirt of ten seasons ago. Club president Joan Laporta was present for the presentation of all the new kits along with some directors, and Nike executive Albert Baronet

FC Barcelona have rediscovered the mythical half-and-half design of the club's centenary for the new home shirt that has been introduced for the 2008/09 the 2008/09 campaign, while the away shirt is yellow.
