West Ham United will be wearing their new home shirt for the first time against Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby Monday night at 8pm GMT/3pm ET. Well, the same new home shirt but with the name of a new sponsor.
It’s interesting how football shirts can look so different with new sponsor names. Earlier this season, XL Leisure Group had their name on the front of the West Ham shirts. But after XL Leisure Group went bankrupt, West Ham covered up the sponsor’s name by putting the player’s number on the front of the shirts.
Now, West Ham has agreed a new sponsorship deal with SBOBET, whose name will adorn the front of West Ham’s shirts for the remainder of the season.
