As you may have heard, our deal with 12bet.com ends this season, and as such in addition to new players and new coaches, the front office in Nervión will be shopping for a new sponsor. Shirt sponsors, of course, are really important to teams and fans alike. The money is obviously a big deal, but a cool brand just makes a great jersey that much better. Conversely, a lame advertiser can not only ruin a jersey, but even impact how you feel about the team.
