This is the new Leganes third shirt 2020/21, Spanish La Liga outfit Leganes’ new alternate strip for the upcoming league season. Made by Joma, the new third kit was officially unveiled on June 10, 2020 and will be worn when Leganes travel to the Nou Camp to take on Barcelona (June 16, 2020) following the resumption of football in Spain.
The third jersey is blue in colour (a nod to the surgical masks of the same colour that we’ve seen many people wear during the Covid-19 pandemic). The jersey also pays tribute to the silent warriors fighting against the disease. On the reverse of the jersey, the words “Gracias Heroes” (Thank you heroes) can be seen. Leganes distributed copies of this jersey to those on the frontline fighting the pandemic (doctors, police, health workers etc), with the latter getting their names on the back of the shirt with No.1 on it.

Here is a look at the value of the shirt contracts Italian Serie A clubs have with their respective kit makers for the 2019/20 campaign. The figures below show the value of the deal in euros per season plus the year the association began and the end year of the kit contract.
Who has the biggest kit deal in Serie A in 19/20?
Not surprisingly, it is Juventus, whose kit contract with Adidas is worth a whopping €51m (51 million euros) per season. Juve’s deal with Adidas is more than three times bigger than their nearest competitors- AC Milan, whose deal with Puma is worth €15m a year. Juve are also the only top flight club in Italy with an Adidas deal- no other Serie A outfit wears the three stripes.
Which is the club with the longest existing kit deal in Serie A (for 2019/20)
The club with the longest existing shirt partner is Inter, whose deal with Nike goes back to 1998. There are rumours that the Nerrazzurri will change partners in the near future, but their current contract with Nike (till 2024) is worth €10m a season. Continue reading
This is the new Raith Rovers home kit 2020/21, RRFC’s new home top for the upcoming Scottish Championship season. The strip is the first to be made by Joma as part of a new three year deal inked with the Spanish firm by the club earlier this month.
Raith won promotion from League One at the end of the 2019/20 and will therefore be competing in Scottish football’s second tier in 2020-21. Renowned author and Raith fan Val McDermid has his logo/website on the front of the jersey, with Carr’s Flour Mills appearing on the reverse. Continue reading

Joma outfitted two clubs in the SPFL Championship in the just concluded 2019/20 season. One was Dunfermline and the other was Partick Thistle, whose spot Raith will be taking in the 20/21 season as League One champions following PTFC’s relegation. Continue reading
