The San Jose Earthquakes and Amway Global announced a historic three-year partnership agreement Tuesday that will include Amway Global's name on the front of the Earthquakes jerseys beginning in 2009. The partnership also features a number of in-stadium, community and grassroots components that will provide greater visibility for both the Earthquakes and Amway Global.

"Putting Amway Global's logo on our jersey is another example of soccer's growth as a major player in the sports marketplace," said Earthquakes Executive Vice President David Alioto. "We are proud to enter into this partnership with Amway Global. Amway Global is a major international brand and has demonstrated a strong commitment to soccer both in the United States and around the world."

The partnership between Amway Global and the Earthquakes kicks off at the Mexico-Sweden match on January 28 at Oakland Alameda County Coliseum when all entry signage for the game will be branded with Amway Global logos. Overall, the agreement will see the Amway Global logo adorn the team's jerseys as well as all team gear, including training tops and team travel apparel. Along with the jersey sponsorship, the deal includes a major signage component as well as a 30-foot tall inflatable Amway Global/Earthquakes jersey that will be displayed at all home Earthquakes games.

Universitario de Deportes, also referred to as Universitario or La U, is the most popular and successful football club in Peru, and they unveiled their new home and away 09/10 kits made by Umbro. 

Universitario's colours are cream (called crema in Spanish), red, burgundy (called guinda in Spanish), and black. When playing a home game they use the crema-coloured kit with black socks and when playing away they use the burgundy-coloured kit with black socks.

 The club's colours at first were not crema. They started out with a white kit which had the badge on the chest. During one of their early seasons, Universitario could not participate in an upcoming match because their uniforms had been sent to the laundry to be washed.

With the start of the 2009/2010 season, KAPPA will be Borussia Dortmund´s new official kit sponsor who take over the kit manufacturing deal from Nike. The international sports brand with Italian roots will equip the Black and Yellow´s Bundesliga team with top-quality sports gear.

BVB´s amateur and youth teams will also wear the outfit with the famous brand name. The comprehensive cooperation, negotiated by SPORTFIVE, will initially go for three years and will also include various advertising services like advertising boards, allocation of VIP tickets as well as other B2B services.

"With Borussia Dortmund we will equip one of the biggest traditional clubs of the league with an incredibly impressive fan base," said Peter Schmidt, owner and CEO of Kappa Deutschland GmbH. "If you´ve once in your life been at a BVB game, you know all about football passion, how it sounds and feels. We are looking forward to this enthusiasm and our new partner."

BVB chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke about the new supplier deal. "KAPPA stands for modern design and a dynamic sport. These are values that we here at BVB also regard highly. Both sides will benefit from this cooperation, because both have high goals in the next years which only can be accomplished in a strong alliance."

Footy-Boots.com revealed exactly what the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly will look like ahead of its official launch in just over 2 months time.

Along with the Nike Mercurial Vapor V, one of the most eagerly awaited football boots to be launched this year is the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly, the successor to the carbon fibre Vapor SL.

The incorporated Flywire technology is based on a sprint spike concept which caused huge interest when it was introduced in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games.

Already creating quite a buzz in the industry with its revolutionary lightweight construction, the Flywire design is said to be inspired by the cables from a suspension bridge. It basically makes use of a strong Vectran thread arranged in a fan-shaped pattern at anchor points around the shoe.

At the time of the track shoe launch, creator Jay Meschter said:

According to the Dailymail, Brewers Carling are close to ending their multi-million pound shirt sponsorship of the Old Firm when their current contract concludes next season.

Should Carling's decide to end the 7-year association, it would end a long run of dual sponsorship for the Glasgow giants. NTL preceded Carling as joint shirt sponsors.

Carling's parent company, Coors, signed an £18 million deal with the Old Firm in the summer of 2005 worth an estimated £1.8 million for each club per season. The previous deal had been worth £12 million.

Carling were forced to take their name off Celtic and Rangers shirts supplied to children in April last year because of legislation deeming it unsuitable.

The US company have been battling to compete against established Scottish brewers Tennent's for the last seven years.

Celtic have lined up a new deal with sportswear giants Nike, which will also run from 2010 and is expected to bank £29m over five years, to supply their kit.

However, like rivals Rangers, they will still need to find a shirt sponsor.

Magners and Coca-Cola are being rumoured as possible shirt sponsors for the Parkhead club should Carling call time.

Carling have denied reports that they are set to end their long-running joint shirt sponsorship deal with the Old Firm.

Shimizu S-pulse unveiled their new 09/10 home. away and goalkeeper kits made by Puma

Since the teams inception, the same colour combination for home shirts have been used each year. The colour scheme of orange shirts, shorts and socks was selected to reflect the famous local product of Shizuoka Prefecture; the mikan.

The current bright orange hue, named S-Pulse Orange by the club, is the result of a gentle evolution from a more yellow/orange shade during the team's early years.

At the advent of the J. League, S-Pulse were the only professional team in the country to wear orange, a distinction which is now shared with several relative newcomers, including Albirex Niigata and Omiya Ardija.

The away kit has also been consistent over the years, comprising each year of white shirts, black shorts and white socks.
