Everton Fans Are Pretty Angry About the Club’s New Sleeve Sponsor

Everton Fans Are Pretty Angry About the Club’s New Sleeve Sponsor

Everton will take to the field against Manchester United this afternoon with a sleeve sponsor for the first time in their long and illustrious history – and some supporters are pretty damn angry about it.

In the cash-rich world of the Premier League, the latest marketing must-have is a second shirt sponsor, solely for the team’s sleeves, in order to create a new, completely separate revenue stream and extra few million quid per season.

Liverpool have Western Union on their sleeves, whilst Manchester City’s sleeves sport the logo of Nexen Tyres and Manchester United are reportedly lining-up a £12 million deal with dating app Tinder.

In this day and age, most supporters will understand needs must, especially a club just shy of the elite live Everton – but being sponsored by Angry Birds? Really?!

Today’s match will be the first time the iconic blue Everton kit is backed by the incredibly popular – and addictive – mobile game – but there’s definitely a lot of folk unhappy:

Is it really that much of a big deal? What do you think?
