Andres Iniesta Announced As Albacete Balompie’s 2012/13 Shirt Sponsor

By Chris Wright

Shame that name’s not on the back of the shirt instead!

Segunda Division B side Albacete Balompie have gotten around to unveiling their new strip for 2012/13 and ‘The Clockwork Cheese’ (that’s their honest-to-goodness nickname!) have snared themselves a fairly nifty shirt sponsor for the coming season.

Albacete are to be sponsored by none other than Andre Iniesta or, more accurately, his wine bodega – the latest in a long line of favours that the Barcelona midfielder has done to help keep his beloved hometown club afloat.

Iniesta even became the club’s biggest majority shareholder back in June by gobbling up €420,000′s worth of shares to help stabilise the small club’s finances during tricky financial times in Spanish football.

Photos (including a few thrown in of Iniesta striking a few poses in and around his bodega)…

    Bodega Iniesta was last year’s kit sponsor too:

    The wine is delicious, though sadly only available in Spain.

  3. [...] he could join forces with Andres Iniesta and produce the silkiest, most technically-adept wine in midfield history!? [...]
