The logos are of companies to which the club from Maastricht was already affiliated, but will now also be visible on the shirt.

The KNVB last week gave the Limburgers permission for this construction, which has never before occurred in the Netherlands.

The guidelines of the football association do state that three sponsor names are allowed on a shirt.

However, the KNVB has given MVV permission to deviate from the guidelines with the unique shirt.

MVV will appear in the new shirt for the first time in the derby against Roda JC on Saturday.

Hamilton can already become world champion on Sunday


Lewis Hamilton can become world champion again in Formula 1 this weekend at the GP of Turkey. The Englishman does not have to win the race for that: all he has to do is for his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas finish.

The Finn is significantly behind (Hamilton is 85 points ahead) and if Bottas finishes behind Hamilton, he will not be able to make up for the remainder of the season.

After the GP of Turkey, there are only three GPs on the program.

Hamilton can match the record of Michael Schumacher with his next world title: the German managed to become world champion in Formula 1 seven times.
