How good would it be if your favourite band appeared on your favourite club’s jerseys?
Well, that is exactly what is going to happen for some German fans after the announcement that extreme metal band Heaven Shall Burn (HSB) will be the new primary shirt sponsors of local club FC Carl Zeiss Jena. Both HSB and FCC are from the German federal state of Thuringia and HSB guitarist Maik Wechert is a big fan of the club. The towns of Saalfeld (where HSB originated) and Jena are only 50 km apart.

Jena currently compete in the Regionalliga Nordost, the fourth tier in German football. They’ve been in the league for the last three seasons after relegation from the 3.Liga at the end of 2011/12.
