Classic French Football Shirt Sponsors
Some iconic French kit sponsors from down the years, in no particular order...
No.1 Saint-Étienne and Super-Tele
From 1979-81 the likes of Platini, Rep and Rocheteau had the weekly French TV magazine emblazoned across their shirts.
No.2 Nantes and Europe 1
The 70s & 80s saw French clubs adopt huge sponsor logos & this was the best. Europe 1 was actually a radio station & sponsored Nantes in their glory years of 1976-83 & then from 85-88 & 89-99. Here's Bossis & Burruchaga wearing them...
No.3 Marseille and Panasonic
The Japanese electronics giant were synonymous with Marseille during their glory years between 1989 and 1992 when the likes of Waddle, Papin and Boli did their stuff. Their logo seemed to fit in just seamlessly with that iconic shirt with the stripes on the arm. Beautiful.
