Aston Villa have today (June 29, 2020) announced a new shirt sponsorship deal with Cazoo that will see the online car retailer replace W88 as the club’s primary sponsors for the upcoming 2020/21 season. Villa’s deal with Cazoo comes around three weeks after the firm announced a deal with Everton to replace SportPesa.
Cazoo’s deal with Everton is for a period of three seasons and is valued at somewhere around £10m per year, but no financial details have been revealed regarding this contract with Villa. The company’s CEO Alex Chesterman was also the founder of Zoopla, the firm that sponsored West Bromwich Albion back in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons (that WBA deal was reportedly worth £1.5m per season)
Having a non-gambling shirt sponsor also means that the junior Villa tops will be allowed to sport the same logo as the senior shirt.
Aston Villa are currently 19th in the Premier League, but have the same number of points as 17th placed West Ham, who are out of the drop zone due to their superior goal difference. The Hammers also revealed their new home kit earlier today. Continue reading
This is the new Borussia Monchengladbach home kit 2020/21, Gladbach’s new primary jersey for the upcoming Bundesliga season. Made by Puma, the new MGB shirt was officially unveiled on June 29, 2020. Die Fohlen also chose to announce their new shirt sponsor- online brokers Flatex, who take over from Postbank.
Postbank have been on the front of Gladbach’s jerseys since 2009 and were reportedly paying the club somewhere around 7 million euros. The new Flatex deal is for a period of three years (till 2023) and will see the Frankfurt based firm pay Borussia around 10 million euros a season.
Gladbach finished fourth in the 2019/20 Bundesliga season, behind champions Bayern, BVB and Leipzig, thus ensuring a spot in the group stages of the Champions League next season.
No details of the shorts and socks were released by Gladbach, but the kit is expected to go on sale later this week. It will also serve as the club’s 120th anniversary strip- Borussia were founded back in 1900, and this is indicated by the 120 Jahre words below the club badge. Continue reading
This is the new West Ham home kit 2020/21, WHUFC’s new home strip for the upcoming league season. Made by Umbro, the new WHUFC shirt was officially unveiled on June 29, 2020- the 125th anniversary of the club’s founding (29 June, 1895).
The kit takes inspiration from the 1960’s- one of the most successful periods in the club’s history, featuring FA and European Cup Winners Cup triumphs, and a key role played by Hammers players in England’s 1996 World Cup win.
The claret and blue shirt will be paired with white shorts and socks. Underneath the badge, we have the words “125 years” written, showing the club’s journey from 1895 to the present. Another similar tribute can be seen on the reverse of the jersey. Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, one of the club’s most consistent performers in what has otherwise been a disappointing Premier League campaign, will be wearing an all green kit under the sticks in 20/21.

This is the new Deportivo La Coruna kit 2020/21, SuperDepor’s new home shirt for the upcoming Spanish league season. Made by Macron, the new Deportivo jersey was officially unveiled late in the evening on June 27, 2020 and celebrates the 25th anniversary of the club’s first major title- the 1995 Copa del Rey win against Valencia at the Bernabeu. Depor won that clash 2-1 on June 27, 1995- it was originally held on June 24 but was suspended due to adverse weather conditions, with play resuming three days later.
