The Serie A Champions' new 2012-13 kits will feature the slogan "30 sul campo" (30 [won] on the pitch) under the crest.  This is instead of the predicted third star which would have denoted the same claim regarding number of Scudettos.

According to official Serie A records, Juve only have 28 titles as they were stripped of two (2004-05 and 2005-06) due to the Calciopoli scandal.  The Bianconeri still believe they earned all the championship wins and were expected by many to add another star to the shirt to celebrate their victory in 2011-12.

In fact, Juve will not have any stars on the shirt next season.

new wales crestThe Football Association of Wales are set to unveil a new design of their traditional crest.

FAW chiefs have voted to replace the current Dragon with a new stylised logo as part of attempts to give the organisation a new corporate identity.

The change means the end of the badge that was first established in 1951 – and proudly worn by players in Wales’ only World Cup appearance back in 1958.

Many fans will be disappointed to lose the iconic design, but FAW officials are hoping the crest will represent the start of a new dawn for the game in Wales.

The new badge sees 11 daffodils represent the 11 footballers around the edge of the crest, but sees the Dragon’s head turned to face forward to illustrate the directions the Wales side are taking, and will be introduced this week ahead of the Cardiff City Stadium clash with Bulgaria.

The winners of each football league division will be wearing gold sleeve patches next season.

Leicester City players will take to the pitch during the 2009/10 campaign wearing special gold sleeve patches on both home and away shirts.

The colour change differs from the traditional Coca-Cola red in recognition of the club's League One title victory.

And Foxes supporters will soon be able to purchase the patches from the City Megastore at the Walkers Stadium and online to apply to the 125th Anniversary jerseys.

The FA has revealed a new version of its iconic ‘Three Lions’ Crest – the visual identity of The FA and England teams. The new design takes its inspiration from the 1948-49 Crest.

The iconic ‘Three Lions’ Crest has been refreshed to give greater visual standout in today’s digital environment.

It draws directly from the significant heritage the Crest embodies – namely the College of Arms version commissioned by The FA in 1948. It is the first time in seven years The FA has made changes to its Crest.

It includes redrawn Three Lions, more authentic-looking Tudor roses and a new colourway for the England Crest – lighter blue – to differentiate it from the previous version and enhance its on-shirt presence.

The England Senior Team will wear the Crest for the first time on 28 March in the match against Slovakia at Wembley Stadium.
