After the opening of Interstore Shanghai last November, Inter and Pirelli wish to greet the many Chinese fans who follow the Nerazzurri with this initiative.

 These are the new Sheffield United home and away kits made by Le Coq Sportif for the 2008/09 season

Sheffield United may be known for their red and white striped kits, but The Blades began playing in white shirts and blue shorts. They briefly flirted with narrow red stripes for the 1890-91 season, before returning to all white the following year.

The stripes returned in the 1892-93 season, with black shorts replacing the blue in 1904 The shirts remained largely unchanged until collars were first removed in 1955, replaced by V-necks until the 1966-67 season (when white socks were also used), and from here on the neck style varied hugely.

Two David Beckham fans, aged 9 and 10, are suing each other over a shirt that the football star handed to the crowd after a LA Galaxy game agains Japan's Gamba Osaka at Hawaii's Aloha Stadium.

Two David Beckham fans, aged 9 and 10, are suing each other over a shirt that the football star handed to the crowd after a LA Galaxy game agains Japan's Gamba Osaka at Hawaii's Aloha Stadium. The nine-year-old reportedly grabbed it first and a fight followed with his best friend who claims it was meant for him. The boys’ parents also got into the fight and hired lawyers, reports the Mirror.co.uk

The nine-year-old boy’s father Wilfred Ho said: "My son got it first from Mr Beckham directly. Our main argument for the jersey is that my son got possession."

But the older boy’s parents say Beckham told their son that he wanted him to have it. The 10-year-old’s father said: "Mr Beckham pointed out he wanted our son to have it and it’s been really hard on him. He’s such a big star and it’s one heck of an experience for the boys."

 Low-cost airline Flybe is to end its sponsorship deal with Norwich City after two years.

Low-cost airline Flybe is to end its sponsorship deal with Norwich City after two years. The Canaries have worn the company's logo on their shirts since 2005, but the contract is not being extended beyond its initial period.

Flybe's Director of Marketing, Simon Lilley says: "The sponsorship deal between Flybe and Norwich City has proved a beneficial partnership. However, we have had to take the difficult decision to step down as the main club sponsor so our other club sponsorships across the UK are given the opportunity to take over the mantle.

"We are parting on very amicable terms with Norwich and, since the decision has been taken, have worked closely with the club to help them source a new sponsor.

"The Norwich fans have treated us immensely well in giving us their support and we wish the club and its fans every success in the future."
