Barcelona To Return To Sponsor-less Shirt?

FC Barcelona could return to a shirt without a front sponsor when the current shirt sponsorship with Qatar Airways expires in 2016, according to Spanish reports.
Barcelona was the last big team still playing without a shirt sponsor until the 2007/08 when they introduced the non-commercial sponsor Unicef on the front. A few years later though, in 2011, Barcelona first had a commercial front shirt sponsorship in Qatar Foundation which made place for Qatar Airways starting in 2013-14.

FC Barcelona Without Shirt Sponsor From 2016?

This is what the current FC Barcelona 2014-15 Home Shirt would look like without a shirt sponsor.

Barcelona closed a five-year €150m deal with Qatar Sports Investments starting in 2011, which for the first two seasons saw Qatar Foundation on the front of the shirts which was then replaced by Qatar Airways.

FC Barcelona would have to inform Nike until September 2015 to be able to design and produce the Barcelona Kits in time for the following season, but the reports are stating the matter could already be discussed at the club's general assembly later this month.

Barcelona lately closed many smaller sponsorship deals with brands like Beko, Intel, or most recently Gillette which might enable them to do without a big-money main shirt sponsor. Barcelona is also hoping to improve the shirt supplier deal when the agreement with Nike ends in 2018.

Warrior Football to be re-branded as New Balance in 2015-16?

Warrior Football, the kit supplier for Liverpool, Stoke City, Porto and Sevilla, will be re-branded as New Balance reports The Anfield Wrap, a popular website and magazine. New Balance is a parent company of Warrior Sports, who entered the football market in 2012.

The End of Warrior Football?

Warrior Sports was founded in 1992 by the former Lacrosse player David Morrow producing the game-changing titanium lacrosse shafts. In 2012, Liverpool FC announced at that time record-breaking deal with Warrior Football, a subsidiary of New Balance since 2004.
In late 2012, Warrior unveiled their first football boot, the Warrior Skreamer S-Lite. A few weeks later, the company signed Marouane Fellaini to wear their new Skreamer boots. Warrior Football also managed to sign several more world class players, including Vincent Kompany. It's very likely that Warrior Football will also swoop Samir Nasri and Álvaro Negredo soon, after both Manchester City players played with whiteout Warrior Boots.

In the case of Warrior Football is re-branded as New Balance, it's uncertain if New Balance keep the three Warrior silos (Skreamer, Gambler, Superheat) or will launch new silos in Summer 2014.

According to the Anfield Wrap, all current kits will be re-branded with the New Balance label from the 2015-16 season.

Warrior was often criticized by fans for their kit designs for the Liverpool 13-14 Away and Third Kits.
