The true story of T-shirt advertising

first_imgMilestonesThe 1995 Champions League was the first with advertising on the elastic. In 2000, the Spanish referees were sponsored. TrousersUdinese wore an ice cream parlor, owned by its president Teofilo Sanson, in his pants. In Italy the law was violated until the arrival of liberation in 1981-82. In 1978, the president of Udinese and the Sanson ice cream parlor, Teofilo, managed to put his inscription on the players’ pants. At the beginning of the 1979-80 season, Perugia managed to circumvent the regulations and thus receive 400 million lire from the Buitoni company to finance the arrival of Paolo Rossi. He wore the Ponte emblem (the pasta brand). To do this, he created a fake clothing company and named it Ponte Sportswear, and that was how he appeared on the shirt as if he were the team’s official supplier of clothing. The rogue was Franco D’Attoma, a pioneer and main promoter of the development of sponsorship within Italian football. Inter Milan started wearing Inno-Hit in training clothes and jumping onto the pitch with it; even Cagliari, Genoa and Torino even dressed their ball boys in clothes worn by Alisarda, Seiko and Cora, respectively. The Italian Federation, faced with an already unstoppable phenomenon, opened the ban (100 square cm were allowed, which soon became 144). Almost all the teams entered advertising at the same time: Juventus sported Ariston; La Roma, Barilla; Pooh sponsored Milan; Inno Hit did the same with Inter Milan; Fiorentina wore her viola color with the j.d. farrow’s; Udinese with a red Z (for Zanussi). Initial photo New eraThe marks entered to sack in the German soccer. Hamburg, Eintracht, Fortuna Dusseldorf, Duisburg or Bayern Munich began to have publicity. AgreementsAtleti has sold the space on its shirt to various brands. Kia and her deal with Columbia Pictures to promote her films are among the best remembered. By Now that advertising attracts more attention when it is not printed on t-shirts, few remember that until recently it was not allowed in Spanish football and few European countries wore it. Mythical “R”The Lanerossi company sponsored Vicenza after the Second World War. Oliver and Benji picked up that idea for their teams. The BBC and ITV refused to allow the English teams to sponsor. The 1984 FA Cup final was the first with advertising Enlarge Zanussi sponsored Real Madrid in 1982. Barcelona and Athletic kept their jersey ‘virgin’ until the 21st century Mineral waterThe French brands have sponsored the Cup finals since 1971. First, Vichy S. Yorre in the Rennes elastic. Then it was the emblem of Perrier. In Italy, after the Second World War, many companies collaborated with clubs. Lanerossi joined Vicenza AgainstGregorio Paunero, economic vice president of Real Madrid, left the vote.center_img putBuitoni wanted to sponsor Perugia but it was not legal. President D’Attoma could not allow the sponsor to leave and used other mechanisms. On January 8, 1973, with 145 votes in favor and 7 against, the change of the club’s shield was approved (replacing the characteristic red lion of the Braunschweig with the deer, the logo of the liquor brand). It was the start of a club sponsorship. The DFB gave the go-ahead … with limitations. It had to be a maximum of 14 centimeters in diameter. The Jägermeister sponsor, before his first appearance on the chest of the Braunschweig footballers in a match against Schalke, reached 18 centimeters. The referee was reluctant but at the end on March 24, 1973 the Eintracht was allowed to wear its deer emblem on its chest. The expansion and momentum that Jägermeister gave to the Eintracht Braunschweig allowed him to cast the nets on top of Paul Breitner and take him away from Real Madrid. Years later, in 1983, Günter Mast became the club’s president and tried, unsuccessfully, to change the name of the club to Jägermeister-Braunschweig … Good idea. Does that sound familiar to you? Now think about the Red Bull brand. It all started on October 9, 1981, in the assembly of the Spanish Football Federation. On the table the approval or not of allowing advertising (along with other issues, for example, the implementation of anti-doping controls, which incidentally, was rejected). According to the chronicles of the time, it was not an easy plenary session: ten hours and ten minutes long. Real Madrid did not attend and Paunero, economic vice president, left. Heated debates, vehement speeches for and against until Pablo Porta was able to move the assembly forward. “Solera, romantic, principles to maintain, money is not always the first thing, the emblems of a club do not have to be stained, I doubt that the publicity gives the money that many imagine, purism.” A summary of how much it could be heard. Of the most critical, Meller, president of Espanyol: “Advertising will not be the salvation of any club, the proof is that only five First Clubs have given their positive vote.” He was right. Most Primera teams did not vote in favor (Barcelona, ​​Real Sociedad, Osasuna, Zaragoza, Sporting), plus the abstentions of Seville, Athletic, Espanyol and Valencia, along with the absent Real Madrid. Even so, with 82 yeses out of 124 present, the use of advertising on T-shirts was approved. Although with restrictions: the anagram could not exceed twelve square centimeters and the advertising legend one hundred square centimeters. And no symbol was allowed on the elastic of the Cup finalists (later it would be corrected for the 1988-89 edition: Real Madrid wore Parmalat and Valladolid, the Helios emblem). That autumn, in which all footballing Spain was already looking towards the approaching World Cup, the starting gun was given to a fashion that would greatly help the economic boost of the clubs.Racing Santander was the first Spanish club to allow itself to be caught by the new fad. On December 27 of that same year, he appeared at the Santiago Bernabéu with the legend of the Teka electrical appliance company in his uniform. Curiously, it was Real Madrid (who did not vote in the famous assembly of its approval) the club that the following year, in the 1982-83 season, would wear the Zanussi brand on its elastic. It kicked off a tradition of selling, and very well, his space on the shirt. Zanussi spoke of 100 million pesetas per campaign. Then they would arrive: Parmalat; Reny Picot; Otaysa; Teka;; Siemens Mobile; Benq; Bwin, until the current Fly Emirates, which pays the white club 25 million euros (can be thirty depending on objectives) per season.Among the great Spaniards, Atlético de Madrid did not receive a sponsor until the 1987-88 season with the Mita company. Marbella or Kia were emblematic signatures of Atlético, although among the most remembered, their agreement with Columbia Pictures that put the logo of the film that promoted those dates on Spanish billboards (‘Spiderman’, ‘Two blondes with chest hair’, ” Peter Pan ‘,’ Two Rebel Policemen 2 ‘,’ Gothika ‘..). Athletic and Barcelona always showed their reluctance to stain the purity of their shirt. Josep Lluís Núñez spent 22 years constantly refusing the sponsor. It was not until 2006 when Barcelona reached a charitable agreement with Unicef ​​to later move to the Qatar Foundation in 2011.Since the 2013-14 campaign, the Catalan club’s uniform wore Qatar Airways after an agreement of 100 million euros for a three-year relationship with the Intel brand under the shirt and with the Beko company on the sleeves of the jacket. That location already wore the logo of the ‘Universal Forum of Cultures’ that would later replace the logo of the TV3 channel. Now Rakuten is in command. TraditionBarcelona and Athletic have been reluctant to ‘stain’ their shirt. Unicef ​​joined the Catalan club in 2006 and Petronor did the same in 2008 with the lions. A lot of moneyJägermeister’s sponsor at Eintracht Braunschweig allowed the German club to sign Breitner. Argentinos Juniors, thanks to Austral, was able to retain the Fluff TiresIn 1976, the Kettering team sported the name of a local company. It was the beginning of the advertising phenomenon in English football. Athletic Bilbao was the last Spanish club to allow a sponsor. In 2008 he reached an agreement with Petronor, although previously he had already reached an agreement with the Basque Government to wear Bizkaia (in training clothes and in the lower categories, at the rate of six million euros). The Euskadi brand has also appeared on the chest of Athletic players.In Italy after the Second World War, the collaboration between a football club and a company, in this case Lanerossi, became the main exponent of Vicenza, creating a new society identified by a large ‘R’ in the sportswear of the Lanerossi Vicenza. Style copied from the series of drawings: ‘Champions: Oliver and Benji’. It was the Argentine Boca Juniors who in 1967 managed to reach an agreement with the soda company Crush to sponsor its sports city. The entity wanted to extend it to the team as well and from the first quarter of that year, Boca players took to the field to pose before the photographers with the inscription of Crush on the center of the chest and on the back. The agreement was juicy: sixty million pesos. Succulent were also the $ 250,000 a year that the Austral airline disbursed to Argentinos Juniors in 1979 for sponsoring his shirt, and incidentally retaining the already dazzling jewel Diego Armando Maradona.In Europe, the first sprouts occurred in France. It was in the 1971 Cup final between Rennes and Olympique de Lyon. Rennes wore the sponsor that sponsored the competition, the natural watermark: Vichy S. Yorre. The following year, in the final between Marseille and Bastia both teams sported the advertising of another brand of natural water: Perrier. That in France, but the real boom would occur in 1973 among the German teams. Hamburg dressed Campari (brand of alcoholic beverage) like the Kaiserslautern; the Eintracht in Frankfurt sponsored Remington; Fortuna Dusseldorf (Allkauf), Duisburg (Brian Scott) and Bayern Munich sported the letters of the German sportswear company Adidas. Although the true promoter of advertising in Germany was Günther Mast. The name at first glance says nothing but is the founder of the liquor company Jägermeister who was looking for other ways to expand the company’s brand across Europe. He came into contact with the Eintracht Braunschweig through an agreement for 100,000 marks but they ran into a ban on the DFB (German Football Association) that only allowed the club’s emblem on the teams’ clothing. For some time, brands only managed to get out on clothes before the game. Crush did it with Boca Juniors in 1967. An era was beginning. Marathoner Pablo Porta had to deal with a difficult assembly. Gregorio Paunero left the meeting, which lasted more than ten hours. Copa del ReyThe ban was opened in the Cup in the 1989 final. Madrid, with Parmalat and Valladolid, with Helios. PioneerRacing dressed in Teka advertising at the Bernabéu. The following year, Zanussi wore white clothing. From its beginnings, England was one of the most closed markets. The entire movement originated in the modest Kettering Town. On January 24, 1976 he wore the local brand ‘Kettering Tires’ on his red shirt but the federation banned it and threatened a fine of £ 1,000. Former club player and chief executive Derek Dougan tried to get around the fine and put Kettering T (ambiguity between Tires or Town). It didn’t slip. In 1977 it was the Hibernian who managed to have Bukta (emblematic British sportswear brand) inscribed on his elastic. Derby County reached an agreement with Saab in 1978 but did not wear them in an official game and Liverpool broke the mold in 1979 when they sponsored with Hitachi. The Federation began to give wide sleeves but it was the televisions that put obstacles. The BBC and ITV refused to broadcast matches between clubs that sport advertising. Low for Coventry City that reached an agreement with Talbot. In 1983 the broadcasting organizations relented and were released with logos of 81 square centimeters, which had to reach half in retransmissions. The FA Cup final at Wembley between Everton (with Hafnia advertising) and Watford (with Iveco sponsor) was the first in English football. The brands found a very juicy market in the British Isles. Liverpool dressed with the Saab brand on the chest, as did Manchester City; Manchester United, with its unmistakable Sharp, Arsenal, with its long-standing JVC sponsorship; Nottingham Forest, with Panasonic; Tottenham took another year and wore Holsten and Chelsea surprised with Gulf Air (Bahrain airline).FIFA prohibits playing wearing a sponsor (it is very scrupulous in terms of size, place and what is put on the uniforms of the teams). Only allow emblems on training clothes. Meanwhile, UEFA only admits one emblem and does not even allow two teams that share a sponsor to agree on the field. Thus, the visiting team must wear another company logo. So much so that the first final of the Champions League with advertising on the shirts was the 1994-95 edition. Ajax wore ABN-Ambro and Milan, Opel.A few years ago it was Bwin, the sports betting brand, which dominated the market but was severely affected by regulations against many countries regarding advertising of this type at sports events. Now the brand that stands out is Fly Emirates (sponsor of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Milan or Hamburg). He went to the ‘naming’ of the stadiums with the ‘Emirates Stadium’, home of Arsenal. And perhaps to other places (Atlético launched the publicity in the socks) or to the referees market, such as Quiero TV in 2000 with the Spanish referees.last_img read more

12-Year-Old Singer, Aspiring Brain Surgeon, Has Big Dreams

first_imgTracey Danielle Jones debuted on the music scene at the age when little girls begin sewing clothes for their Barbie dolls and playing house – at just eight years old.Instead, young Tracey was working hard on releasing her first album ‘Just Like You’, a great compilation of music that sub-consciously began when she was just two years old. From listening to songs being played in the car during car rides with her parents Victor Daniel Jones and Maryann Roberts Jones, to then singing along with these songs, Tracey grew her musical gift, not knowing she was turning herself into a gifted gospel artist that today is the proud owner of two albums and five awards.A video of her version of Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You” made social media followers around the world fall in love with the voice of a little angel, who by then could sing any gospel song as beautifully as the song writers themselves.Having been discovered, Tracey was invited to Liberia on tour in August of 2012, a first time experience for the child, who had never seen her parents’ homeland. In Liberia, she met other Liberian children of all ages, ministers and Vice President Joseph Boakai.With her newly released album ‘Give Your Praise’ and her stunning change in appearance during her emergence at the Liberian Entertainment Awards ceremony, Tracey is the talk of the town.You should probably know who she is:Who is Tracey?Tracey Danielle Jones was born in Bensalem, Pennsylvania (USA), and she is the daughter of two Liberian refugees. She has three brothers and a 19-year-old sister. Tracey was discovered by the Liberian community when she published her version of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Look to You’, which has close to half a million views on YouTube and thousands of likes.“Other than singing, I also want to become a brain surgeon. In order for me to become that, I need high grades, and that requires high studies,” the 12-year-old told LIB Life. “Since 2012 when I left Liberia, I’ve released my second album, ‘Give Your Praise’, and I’ve won five musical awards off the album.” Her father tells LIB Life that she is an honor roll student, scoring all A’s in the 7th grade. As parents, he and the child’s mother are just encouraging her to do what she loves to do with her career, Tracy’s father, Victor Jones said. We [stress the importance of] her education and teach her to be a good child.”When asked how she fits her career in with school, Tracey replied confidently, “When I come from school, I find something to eat and then I study. I usually don’t perform while school is open, and perform while school is closed, and only take piano lessons on the weekend.” Why is everybody talking about her?Tracey’s angelic voice has created a demand in the Liberian community, who want to hear more from her. Her 2012 Liberia tour set the record straight that what viewers heard on her ‘I Look to You’ version on YouTube was indeed bona fide.But being the youngest Liberian gospel artist, people were buzzing about her way before her tour to Liberia. Tracy has received the most awards as a child singer than any other Liberian child singer.“I actually love to sing and my parents don’t force me to sing but encourage me to do it. As long as I have stuff to play and have time for myself, singing is okay,” Tracey told LIB Life.What has Tracey been up to?“I’ve established my foundation called the Tracey Foundation to raise money to build a children’s hospital. During the Ebola crisis, I sent clothes and food through an organization in Liberia; and now I’m still raising money and selling CDs to build the hospital,” she explained.“I would like to give encouraging words to those who want to become somebody,” the 12-year-old, ultra mature for her age, concluded her interview with LIB Life. “Young children, if someone is telling you that you can’t do something, just continue going forward because you’re going to make it.”The young singer and philanthropist is appealing to Liberians of good will, development partners and the Liberian Government for 15 to 20 acres of land (gratis or at reasonable price) on which to build the Tracey Foundation Children’s Hospital. Donors and volunteers are welcome. The Tracey Foundation is open to partnering with churches, organizations and individuals. She has already started fundraising through concert tours and selling lemonade and chocolate bars at various Wal-Marts in North Carolina.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

10 puppies stolen from pet store

first_imgA video tape of the burglary was erased. It was unclear if the burglar deliberately erased the tape, Ro said. A security guard was in the bathroom during the robbery, Ro said. There are no suspects and the investigation is ongoing, Gonzalez said. The first burglary occurred between 11:45 p.m. Nov. 6 and 3:30 a.m. Nov. 7 with 20-22 puppies worth approximately $30,000 stolen, Lt. Doug Fetteroll of the sheriff’s department’s Norwalk Station said. The stolen puppies in the first burglary included teacup Yorkshire terriers, Shih-Tzus, Chihuahuas, Maltese and Pekingese, Ro told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. LA MIRADA – Approximately 10 pedigree puppies worth a combined $15,000 were taken from a La Mirada pet store early today, the second time the store has been burglarized this month, authorities said. Sheriff’s deputies responding to an alarm at 1:38 a.m. at the Puppy Love pet store at 14766 Beach Blvd., near Rosecrans Avenue, found the front door smashed and puppies missing, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Liza Gonzalez. Security bars and the store’s lock were also smashed, said owner Paul Ro, who offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the thief’s arrest. “I’ve got to catch him — this evil guy,” said Ro, who has owned the store for one year. “I’ve lost 30 dogs in two weeks. Everything is a mess.” Left behind were a year-old Yorkshire terrier, a 7-month-old Maltese and a 3-month-old Pomeranian,plus Ro’s cocker spaniel, the Tribune reported. Because the thief steered clear of the older dogs, “I think this guy had knowledge of dogs,” Ro told the Tribune. Insurance covered the losses from the first burglary, Ro said, who said he is awaiting word whether today’s robbery will be covered. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EXCLUSIVE: FA chief tells talkSPORT nationality doesn’t matter in manager search

first_imgFootball Association chief executive Martin Glenn has told talkSPORT nationality will not be a factor in the England manager search, as all he wants is a coach who’s ‘going to win us a tournament or two.’Roy Hodgson announced his resignation as manager minutes after the defeat to Iceland on Monday night, which knocked out the Three Lions from Euro 2016.It was arguably the nadir of Hodgson’s spell in charge of England – a spell which has had many more lows than highs.He won just three international tournament matches – two at Euro 2012 and one at this edition – and coached the team who finished the 2014 World Cup bottom of their group.The 68-year-old’s resignation was not a surprise, and Glenn is now heading the search for the next man to take the high-pressure job, with the willingness to look abroad should the best option not be an Englishman.Speaking to talkSPORT’s Nigel Adderley, Glenn responded when asked which manager he wants to hire: “One who’s going to win us a tournament or two!“I’m not [bothered about nationality]. I think it’s the best person for the job.“Clearly an English person would be great, as it’s an inspiration for other young managers, but you look at the Premier League and there are not many of them there.“So there’s a question there as to where’s the pipeline?“But look, it’s someone who can inspire the team, and can harness all the resources the English Football Association can bring to its national team.“We’re one of the richest associations in the world, and we’ve got a fabulous network of football happening in England – from the Premier League all through the pyramid.“That’s got to be for us to harness. We’ve got to find a way of doing it to make us world builders.”last_img read more

Man became aggressive with Gardaí following fight

first_imgCOURTS: A man who claimed he had been attacked, refused to heed instructions from Gardaí to leave the scene and was arrested. Justin Bonner, with an address at 17 B Shopping Centre Flats, Ballybofey appeared at Letterkenny District Court on Thursday morning. The court heard how on July 7th, 2015 – Gardaí witnessed two males acting aggressively towards each other.Gardaí intervened, but the defendant was irate, agitated and aggressive following the row, and attempted to ran after the male he claim attacked him.Gardaí attempted to calm Mr Bonner down on several occasions, but he then became aggressive towards them – and he was subsequently arrested and charged with a public order offence.Solicitor for the defendant Kieran Gorman told the court that his client was aggrieved on the night in question, but realises what he did was stupid.“My client is in his 20’s, and is a father of one child, and he wants to apologise to the Gardaí involved in the incident, he’s never been involved in this type of behaviour before.“He was aggrieved because the other party had attacked him and started the row, but he’s aware now he should have left the Gardaí to deal with it.The court were told that he had fifteen previous convictions, most of which were for road traffic offences, including a disqualification from driving for a period of two years.He had no previous public order offences prior to the charge he appeared on, but all other offences were alcohol related.Judge Paul Kelly asked Kieran Dillion, ‘Does your client have a bit of a drink problem’?Kieran Dillion resp0onded by saying, “I don’t think so, he was working at the time of some of these offences, but is employed as a full-time labourer now, and has a good work ethic, he’s been doing well for the last 6 to 7 weeks and wants to put all of this behind him.”Judge Paul Kelly fined the defendant €250 with three months to pay.Man became aggressive with Gardaí following fight was last modified: July 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aggressivearrestedcourtsFightfinedGardaJustin BonnernewsPUBLIC ORDERlast_img read more
