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.

Referees have gone colour blind over the last 15 years - it’s official.
 
The Football League has stuck to its policy of insisting the side who finished lower in the regular season changes kit tomorrow. As that was QPR, they will wear the Dennis the Menace red-and-black hoops made famous by the Beano boy, and will also wear alien red shorts.
 
The reason? Derby’s white and Rangers blue-and-white hoops is a colour clash.
