Vitoria-2010-penalty-football-kits.jpg

Esporte Clube Vitória, usually known simply as Vitória has unveiled the new 2010 football kits made by Penalty.

The Brazilian club was founded on May 13, 1899, by the brothers Artur and Artêmio Valente. They were from a traditional Bahian family and discovered football during their studies in England. Initially, however, Vitória was a cricket club named Club de Cricket Victoria.

Ipswich Town used a new 3rd white away shirt made by Mitre in the match against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

The Club's normal red away shirt clashed with Palace's red and blue stripes so a third kit has been produced.

It was also due to be worn in last week's trip to Scunthorpe for the same reason but a frozen pitch at Glanford Park caused that game to be postponed.

arsenal-emirates.jpgWe've heard some rumours last year, but according to The Mirror, Arsenal are looking to renegotiate their sponsorship deal. The Gunners still feel they have sold themselves short with their £5million-a-year deal which has six years left to run.

This sponsorship deal is dwarfed by Manchester United's four-year contract - worth over £20m a season - with Aon, who will replace insurance giant AIG from the beginning of next 10/11 season.

Manchester United's deal is also matched by Liverpool who will have Standard Chartered Bank paying to appear on the players' shirts from next 10/11 season.

Chelsea's sponsorship deal with electrical giants Samsung is worth around £60m over five years. The Blues paid Umbro £24m to get out of their kit contract and sign a new deal with Adidas before signing the Samsung shirt sponsorship deal.

Clube de Regatas Brasil, or CRB as it is usually called, unveiled the new 2010 Home football kit designed by Antonio Bordallo, who incorporated the crest design and St George cross into the shirt design. The manufacturer is a brand from Recife (northeast of Brazil) called TRONADON.

For those who don’t know him…Antonio Bordallo was the winner of the first DesignFootball.com kit design contest and delivered the winning Poland/Nike design which you can see here.

It’s good to see that a DF designer takes his first step into a career as a professional football kit designer, and it shows that it can be a good start to show your kit design talents at designfootball.com.
