New Kit Launched

Recommended Posts

I just don't get why they think that now, right now in the middle of a 20% plunge in the economy is a good time to release another new top to the market: even with the most professional marketing pitch in the world I don't see how it can reach the desired sales total in that context. Unless the Millions sponsorship is up for renewal/replacement at the end of the season then it really should have been kept on hold instead.


The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

It’s been on Curtis Sports’ website since March anyway.

I wouldn’t know about what MacKinnon said though, I’ve chucked these interviews. Gerry McDade does my tits in so the less I have to listen to him the better.

Gerry’s a FANTASTIC man, he really is!

Look forward to the day we no longer have Millions as our shirt sponsors. Hopefully be able to generate some extra cash for the sponsorship next season if we allow other businesses to bid for it. 

It's been mentioned before that the club has always insisted Golden Casket "pay the going rate" for the shirt sponsorship, but I doubt the club would ever release the figures anyway.

Interesting however that the new home kit has Millions on the back as well, which strikes me as a missed opportunity to get some additional funds - unless GC are paying separately for that as well.

Dundee Utd's new kits for example have a different back of shirt sponsor (as you would expect, as that's kind of the point (in fact they have two back of shirt sponsors)) and short, sock and sleeve sponsors.

It's a bit cluttered and desperate looking but at least you can see they've got their commercial department working.

It looks like the rules (page 84) state the amount of sponsors you're allowed is about total area used, rather than a restriction of the number of sponsors?

Based on previous discussions on here I think it’s somewhere in the ballpark of £25k-£30k pa. There’s a consistent figure of approx £27k in GC’s accounts year on year payable to ‘other creditors’ - I wonder if that’s it.

I remember looking at the accounts up until 2017 and there was that miscellaneous number that did seem pretty consistent with a sponsorship figure. Other GC subsidies started to decline around then but that one was pretty constant. Not sure if it's still the case but it definitely used to be.


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.

I really, really, hope we've got a sponsor lined up for Morton TV.

I'm more worried about them not considering connectivity for it since all they've mentioned is investing in the recording equipment. It won't be that cheap to get a circuit into supported and it isn't always the quickest thing to get done either.

Preorders now live for 3rd kit.

I see Smith's have uploaded a computer graphic with the light blue badge. But yet Morton felt they should upload one with a coloured in badge the other day.

Still think the textured material on the graphic is very misleading compared to the shiny stuff it's actually made of.

At least it's not 'Hopkins' as half of the Scottish media still bizarrely call him.

Thanks - good to know. Although does that mean Arc have dropped out, seeing as millions is on the back of the new kit?

Arc's pulled out. Michael, change that to "An Afternoon with Millions."

Millions was printed on the back of the replica kits last season, with the Arc and Blairs logos added to the players shirts and shorts. Could be the same deal for the coming season.

I see Smiths are advertising the new home and 3rd kits as being for 2020/22. 

I know we normally keep them for 2 years but is that a bit presumptuous?

Or has that decision been made (and by who?) that the kit won't change or the sponsor, cutting off potential revenue streams if the ownership change goes through next summer?
