Belgian manufacturer Patrick had a whale of the time in the 1980s. Big club contracts in mainland Europe - and the odd example in the UK - coupled with huge name player endorsement deals made Patrick a winner in the eyes of a generation of football fans.

This 1985 catalogue shows the teamwear range, which doesn’t necessarily stand the test of time, but features connoisseur hits like jacquard shadow stripes and pinstripes on those oh-so-short shorts.

Rangers FC announced Castore, the fastest growing premium British sportswear brand, as its official kit and retail partner from the 2020-21 football season.

The multi-year partnership stands as one of the most valuable commercial partnerships in the club’s recent history and represents a major milestone in our ambition to achieve excellence, at every level of the club, in anticipation of our 150th anniversary year.

Nike have released the new Canada Home shirt.

The shirt is in a design in-keeping with the American sportswear giants’ recent releases in cut, with a deep v-style neck, and this red example focusses the attention with a patterned watermark. The sublimated effect is a combination of random geometric patterns with wireframe maple leaves - the emblem of Canada and the Canadian Soccer Association.

Falkirk FC revealed their new Away football shirt by Puma for the 20-21 season.

The club have returned to red for their away kit which features the same geometric Puma design as the home kit but is predominantly red with small flashes of navy blue, with a navy blue trim around the sleeves and neck.

Falkirk FC revealed their new Home football shirt by Puma for the 20-21 season.

The colour of the home shirt is a classic navy blue, but this time with a spin. Across the classic navy blue is a geometric Puma design featuring a lighter shade of blue with flashes of red as well as a red trim around the sleeves and V-neck.

Cliftonville FC revealed their new Away football kit for the 2020–21 NIFL Premiership, Northern Ireland's highest national football league.

The Puma kit heralds a welcome return to a yellow jersey, while the emerald green trim, shorts and socks combine to complement a new look for the Reds on the road.

Umbro is a brand which many football kit fans, particularly of a certain vintage, will proclaim as the best ever. These catalogue pages from the 1977-78 season will only bolster that argument.

The teamwear designs demonstrate that Umbro could do the simple kit to virtual perfection - as they continue to do today - and the addition of the famous and inspired diamond taping on a further range took the effect to another level. They cheekily even created what seem like copies of the Admiral England kits of the time, after Umbro had lost their long-term Football Association contract to the new kid on the block.

The home game of FC Augsburg against VfL Wolfsburg will be a special game in several ways. For the first time, the FCA is playing a competitive match without spectators in the Bundesliga. In addition, the Fuggerstädter will wear a one-off special edition jersey under the motto 'Augsburg Holds Together 2020'.

The main sponsor, WWK Insurance, is kindly giving up their shirt sponsorship position at the restart of the Bundesliga. Instead, the logo of #augsburghaltenzusammen2020 is showing on the black shirt.

Watford FC announced that it has reached agreement with Kelme to be the club’s technical partner for four years from the beginning of the 2020/21 season.

This agreement is the largest in the club’s history and enables us to benefit from Kelme’s flexibility and bespoke design process.
