 George Best infamously admitted to spending his wages “on booze, birds and fast cars,” but while this may be usual for a professional footballer, the typical fan squanders their money on, among other club merchandise, the prized football shirt.

George Best infamously admitted to spending his wages "on booze, birds and fast cars," but while this may be usual for a professional footballer, the typical fan squanders their money on, among other club merchandise, the prized football shirt.

Since the commercialisation of the teams treasured tops, the sales of shirts has rapidly and increasingly skyrocketed; long gone the days when the only products on sale were bobble hats, scarves and claxons but despite the now varied market, it is the shirt that sits at the top of the monstrous global football brand.

It was in 1977 when Hibernian Football Club set the ball rolling to transform the usual muddy shirt into a global and heavily commercial business, when the Scottish club became the first British club to emblazon a sponsor upon their shirt. Across many fellow countries in Europe this pattern to advertise on football shirts was already common practice. By the 1980’s this tradition grew in Britain however the Football League did impose certain limits such as disapproving of sponsorship from cigarette companies in order to pacify some fans and the "non-advertising" BBC.

Some 30 years on, sponsors such as The Evening Gazette of Middlesbrough and similar small businesses have traded places with the global commercial giants. Today it is a mixture of mobile phone companies, gaming corporations and an invasion of foreign investment that projects the total value of Premiership shirt sponsorship to the incredible £70 million a year figure.
