I'll start on a positive. The sponsor integration is mint. Very well done.

The training gear is okay, nothing majorly wrong with it but it is a bit boring. Hopefully there is one of the run out tops again with a little bit more going on.

I hope that the jerseys look a bit better on field, because the template doesn't make them look too great. The Nines jersey might be nice if the graphic on the front is subtle, but it looks like a dogs breakfast on that template.

I'm a little disappointed so far to be honest. The feedback on League Unlimited for ISC is typically quite positive, so I was expecting a bit more.

Another look at the ISC jersey. Lightning bolts still on the side panels. Ignore the SpotJobs logo - must be an old render because they're definitely gone.

Whitehorse Truck and Bus have been replaced by Fuso on the club, membership and corporate websites.

Urgh, the 9s jersey is horrendous, but at least it's better than the broncos one.

Ha! Even after over 2 decades that aqua Broncos jersey is never going to get any love!

The new store is secretly online but the club still hasn't officially announced anything. I found it through the new Essendon ISC store by changing the subdomain - https://ms.isc-store.com.au/

The full range isn't available yet (maybe that's why it hasn't been officially launched yet) but there's this image of the home and away jerseys:

Bloody hell, ISC and the Mighty Bombers have signed a 7 year deal.

They must have some great negotiators at ISC. That is a massive home run. For them.

ISC gear is absolutely horrible.
I'm a merch freak, but I won't be buying any of their stuff. Star were horrendous as well.

Is makes sense to pre-order one of these when they are released as it'll be a perfect birthday present to myself!

I just saw a story on the news that Crown Resorts is going through a major cost cutting exercise which includes dumping their sponsorship of the Storm, Rabbitohs and the VRC Oaks Day.

Damn, as far as my ethics and morals are concerned I don't care that we no longer spruik a casino as our sponsor... however, the company could definitely splash the cash and their branding tied in so seamlessly with our kit

Lets hope we get another market leading company

As flagged by The Australian’s Margin Call column, Crown’s sponsorship of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Melbourne Storm NRL teams has also been abandoned as part of the review.

Crown struck a three-year, $3m sponsorship with Souths in 2014, replacing rival casino operator The Star. At the same time Mr Packer paid $12.5m for a 37.5 per cent stake in the club alongside Russell Crowe. A five-year deal with the Melbourne Storm was extended last year.


(The article is behind a paywall so if you'd like to read the entire thing just Google "Crown to drop sport star links" and you should be able to reach it that way.)

According to the article in the Australian it sounds like Crown Resorts dropping sponsorship is a decision that has already been made, not something under consideration. Very disappointing considering a) we only just signed a lengthy renewal (until the end of 2020) and b) you know Crown Resorts can afford it, cost cutting or not. You'd like to think they'll at least see out the rest of the season. The integration of the Crown Resorts logo over the last couple of years has been spot on, even if the logo is a tad on the large side.

I wonder if an existing sponsor will step up and take the front of jersey position. With the way Tigerair has been increasing their visibility on the jersey I wonder if they'll put their hand up. Maybe the only reason they're not there already is because Crown Resorts already had a deal and was willing to renew.

I still think Bank of Melbourne would be the perfect fit as a sponsor.
