algeria-le-coq-sportif-home-shirt-08-09.jpg

These are the Algeria national team home and away football shirts made by Le Coq Sportif for the 2008/2009 season.

The Algerian national team was formed in clandestine circumstances in 1958 when Mohamed Boumezrag, a leader of a section of the Front de Libération Nationale (FLN) of Algeria based in metropolitan France, returned from the 1957 World Youth Festival. Using the contacts he had made during the tournament, Boumezrag recruited ten of the best-known French-based Algerian professional players to secretly leave the country and go to Tunisia where the Algerian national team was formally established on April 13.

The world football governing body FIFA later announced after protest from the French Football Federation, that any team that played the Algerians would be expelled from the World Cup, while the French government succeeded in arresting other players who tried to leave the country to join the team. Despite these obstacles, the Algerian FLN team played 91 matches over the next four years and helped win international recognition for the Algerian struggle for independence.

new-israel-crest.jpg

The Israel Football Association unveiled their brand new football crest which is set to be placed on the 08/09 home and away shirts. The IFA was founded under the name Palestine Football Association (PFA) in 1928, 20 years before the establishment of the state of Israel at the end of the British Mandate of Palestine.

The PFA was accepted as a full member of FIFA in 1929. The PFA first dealt with local leagues, but later also managed the national team that was created to participate in the World Cup qualifications (participating in 1934 and 1938 as the Palestine/Eretz Yisrael national team). Upon creation of the State of Israel in 1948, IFA became the official association of the new state. The Israel national team's first game as an independent state was on September 26, 1948, against the USA (result: 1-3 to the USA).

osasuna-08-09-diadora-home-kit-shirt.jpg

Diadora signed a five-years sponsorship agreement with Osasuna and presented the home jersey that Osasuna is going to wear in the 2008/09 season and which colours are those dear to the team, respecting their tradition, red and blue. The away and third jerseys together with the merchandising equipment will be presented in July.

The new Diadora kit especially developed for the Spanish team mirrors Diadora’s idea of innovation and style as a winning recipe for success and is the result of the Gamma project: designed like two gammas meeting and complementing each-other, this is the very first project that embraces both uniforms and accessories, from ball to shin-guards, from boots to keeper’s gloves, a total look that speaks of study and development.

bristol_rovers-08-09-errea-home-kit-shirt.jpg

Bristol Rovers have unveiled their new home shirt for the 2008-2009 season made by Errea. The shirt comes with a v-neck rather than a round collar and features breathable panels and gold piping.

The traditional quarters feature a slightly lighter shade of blue to match the colour of sponsors Cowlin's new logo. The new shirt will go on sale at the club's annual fun day at the Memorial Stadium on July 6. Online orders can be taken from June 28. Rovers will also be producing a special edition Black Arab shirt later in the year to celebrate the club's 125th anniversary.

Adult shirts will range from small to 5XL and cost GBP 35, with child sizes priced at GBP 27. New training kit - which includes tracksuits, T-shirts, zip-up jackets and polo shirts - will be available from the club shop shortly.

juninho-shirt.jpg 

Brazil shirts signed by Pele and Juninho, one of Stewart Downing’s England shirts, a pair of Afonso Alves’ match-worn boots and the chance to join Alastair Brownlee when he makes his commentary comeback are just some of the superb prizes being auctioned in aid of two charities.

Boro fans – and football supporters in general – have the chance to snap up a long list of fantastic prizes in the auction, which is designed to raise cash for one of Boro’s chosen charities, Teesside Hospice, and the Lourdes Sick Fund.

The auction will culminate in a gala dinner at the Riverside Stadium on June 13 when Alastair Brownlee and Boro legend Craig Hignett will entertain 200 guests, who will then dance the night away to the sounds of top local band The Beer Pigs.

Several of the items are open to advance bids from those unable to attend the event.

They include a Brazil shirt signed by the great Pele and another signed by Boro legend and World Cup winner Juninho.

Also open for bids is a pair of signed boots worn in Premier League action by Boro’s new Brazilian hotshot Afonso Alves, a 1998-99 Boro away shirt signed by Paul Gascoigne, the new Boro home shirt signed by the players and a football signed by Rangers’ UEFA Cup final squad.

rochdale-2008-wembley-shirt.jpg

 

To mark Rochdale AFC's first ever trip to Wemley the club have commissioned a small quantity of commemorative home shirts.

Bearing the same inscription as those worn by the players on the big day, the club shop is expecting delivery on Friday in time for Monday's visit to the home of football.

Rochdale Football Club asked their kit supplier Nike to make as many replica Rochdale shirts as they can.

Over the past week, the entire stock of shirts has been snapped up by fans, who flocked to the club shop – the only outlet in Rochdale which sells them – to make sure they had them in time for Monday’s match at Wembley.

Club chiefs haven’t put a limit on their latest order and have asked the manufactures simply to provide as many as they can make.

The remaining shirts which went on sale on Friday morning were expected to sell out immediately.
