Aston Villa will announce their new sponsor on Thursday while revealing their shiny new kits. We're all in the dark about who the sponsor might be -- clearly Forex didn't go so well -- and this tweet by Mat Kendrick didn't exactly enlighten:
To be confirmed, but I think new #avfc sponsor is a very big, rapidly expanding international company, if not exactly a household name
Just browsing over this list of the Top 100 Companies in the world leads me to believe there are plenty of international companies that I've never heard of -- so tomorrow's announcement will likely come as a complete surprise. Still, that doesn't mean we can't try to come up with some possibilities. UnitedHealth Group, anyone? That would be slightly ironic. "Costco Wholesale: just like our players!" "Best Buy: We Got Bent!" Or what about Anheuser-Busch InBev? It'll take up the entire kit while also reminding us that drinking is the only way to get through Villa fandom.
Or, of course, we could go simple with Target. And put the symbol on the shorts. Or perhaps over the freaking goal.
