Qatar to Pay Barcelona $200 Million in Jersey Sponsorship Deal

Those clean, crisp, relatively naked Barcelona jerserys? Yeah, thing of the past.

From the AP:

Barcelona will receive 30 million euro ($40 million) per season from 2011-12 from the nonprofit organization, located in the tiny gulf state where the 2022 World Cup will be played. Unlike other top soccer clubs, Barcelona has previously refused to sell advertising space to a shirt sponsor, but has been putting children’s charity UNICEF on its front for free since 2006. Barcelona said the UNICEF name will remain on the shirts and that it would seek a way to combine the two logos, but the Qatar Foundation would be the prevalent one if a solution cannot be found.

Charity gets the shaft again.

In other news jersey sponsorship-related news, the Portland Timbers revealed their new uniforms. Alaska Airlines is the corporate partner. They are not paying $200 million.

General Manager Shaq?

Shaq (failed actor, failed rapper) is realizing his post-career plans should probably include basketball. The newest idea: New Jersey Nets general manager.

“I would have liked to see the new owner get with the guy who built the arena and keep the Nets there,” he said earlier this week. “I don’t want to see the team go to Brooklyn. Maybe the two heads can get together, they can do that and I can come down there and become general manager.”

His current team – the Boston Celtics – probably wouldn’t be too happy if he left to GM their Eastern Conference rivals, but the Big Aristotle isn’t ready to depart yet. (He might be soon, however, if Nate Robinson keeps dunking on him.)

Shaq might not be the best judge of talent but he has one part of the GM job down already: He certainly knows how to handle the media.
