Manchester United could lose their lucrative shirt sponsorship deal with AIG after all, as the American insurance giants look to cut costs.

The European champions are still owed half of the money on the £56million agreement they sealed with AIG two years ago.

After being rescued from meltdown by a £43billion loan from the American government last month, AIG have now embarked on a massive moneysaving exercise.

That is likely to spell bad news for United - and the fans who have bought football shirts with the AIG logo.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has secured a renewed deal with their kit sponsors adidas to extend their sponsorship to the newly introduced national U-13 teams.

Adidas only produced kits for the senior national teams. But after a meeting last week, Nigerian football officials were able to convince the company to extend the deal to the youth teams.

Now adidas has also agreed to start producing small size apparels to suit the smaller bodies of the U-13 national team players and in addition to this, adidas has also agreed to include footballs in its package with the NFF.

Previously the deal only covered socks, shorts and shirts, along with training attire.

Breaking news - Phillips will soon announce that it will stop as the main shirt sponsor of PSV (Phillips sport vereniging) after 26 years of football shirt sponsoring.

According to Stan Valckx, Philips will soon no longer be on the shirts of PSV.

Former technical director of PSV Stan Valckx said in an interview with the Dutch radio program - NOS Langs de Lijn -  that Philips no longer has affinity with top-level football.

Valckx, who is also a former football player at PSV, also said that, “the company will soon announce to the world that they will actually stop as the main shirt sponsor for the club, but that this does not immediately mean that Phillips will no longer sponsor PSV at all”.

According to Valckx, Phillips will stay within the name of the Club and Philips stadium will stay the name of the PSV stadium for a significant amount, but as a shirt sponsor Philips will disappear.

Queens Park Rangers are close to agreeing a new £20 million shirt sponsorship deal which could result in Loftus Road being renamed the Kingfisher Stadium.

Formula One team Force India's owner Vijay Mallya is expanding his football interest outside India and is on the verge of inking a shirt sponsorship deal with English Championship club Queens Park Rangers, according to media reports.

Mallya, who sponsors Kolkata clubs Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, is close to agreeing a five-year £ 20 million deal to advertise his Kingfisher beer on the players' shirts, and a naming rights deal for the Loftus Road stadium, to be named after Mallya's Kingfisher brand.

Adidas and Asics, two brands with famed stripe trademarks have filed separate trademark infringement suits against Target Corp. and Dolce & Gabbana Srl, respectively.

Target Corp. is the victim of the latest legal effort by Adidas to defend the trademarked 3-stripe design that adorns its athletic wear and footwear.

Adidas said in documents filed in federal court in Portland, Ore., on Sept. 30, that Target has produced and distributed goods that imitate its trademark parallel three-stripe mark. The complaint includes photos of footwear sold at Target that bear two and four stripes.

In each case “Target agreed not to produce, manufacture, distribute or sell any footwear or apparel bearing the 3 -Stripe Mark or any design, mark or feature that is a confusingly similar imitation of the 3-Stripe Mark,” the suit stated.

The watch company Wyler Genève has signed a new licensing agreement to produce the official watch of the Italian national football team, almost 75 years after the pioneering Italian Wyler distributor Innocente Binda put the company’s watches on the wrists of the Squadra Azzurra for the World Cup 1934.

To coincide with Italy’s first qualifying matches for the 2010 World Cup, Wyler Genève renews its association with the Italian team through a new licensing agreement to produce the official watch of the Italian national football team.

The watch is built around the brand’s unique shock-absorbing case and bears distinguishing features that are sure to appeal to Italian football fans. The most obvious of these is the colour of the dial and rubber strap, which is identical to the famous blue of the team's strip.
