Shirt sponsors are a great source of income for a football club, and also provide a fantastic way for a company to get it’s name out there – but sometimes this symbiotic relationship creates something monstrous. These sponsors should never have even been considered for that front-of-shirt space, and the oversight involved really boggles the mind.

I’ve gathered together 15 of the funniest shirt sponsors of all time. Some of them are real clangers and may make you worry about what possessed the powers that be when making the decision to use these specific sponsors. If football fans didn’t already have enough excuses to take the mickey out of one another, ridiculous shirt sponsors certainly add a wealth of humour to the game.
