For over a century club bosses stubbornly resisted the march of time and capitalism to keep their team strip sponsor-free, at a time when every other club from football's upper echelons right down to your average Sunday League side had given in to financial expediency.
"For the first time in our more than 107 years of history, our main soccer team will wear an emblem on the front of its shirt," said Laporta at a Unicef executive committee meeting. "It will not be the brand name of a corporation. It will not be a commercial to promote some kind of business. It will be the logo of 'Unicef'. Through Unicef, we, the people of FC Barcelona, the people of 'Barça', are very proud to donate our shirt to the children of the world who are our present, but especially are our future."

Its a shame to see them have a logo on their kit, but if it had to happen at least its for a worthy cause. Good on em.

OT for a second, but:

@Ambush, sorry to see that you'll be losing out with your Art Collector software, with the iTunes update. That sucks!

Actually, a bigger software company just made a bid on that app. I'll have to decide if I want to sell it.

why wouldn't you? Apple just killed your market. As much as I'm all for small, independent apps and developers, I bloody well hate manually doing the Albumn art chore and this feature in iTunes 7 is a god send.

Damn, I have to admit I had never noticed this before (and I've been following international football since 1980).

to Barça though!

If I change my way of living, and if I pave my streets with good times, will the mountain keep on giving…

Man...I really loved the fact that their kit was absolutely logo-free until now. At least it's for a good cause though. Love me some Ronaldinho!
