Barcelona, Marseille, now Metz: French Club's Kits to Bear Name of Singer Yanns
FC Metz are the latest club to have a musical shirt sponsor, with the name of local singer Yanns to appear on their shirts until the end of the season.
Metz's Kits to Carry Singer's Name
Barcelona had Drake and Rosalia on their shirts earlier this season as part of their Spotify deal, Marseille had the logo of rapper Jul, and now FC Metz are getting in on the act too. They announced a partnership earlier this month with local singer Yanns (above, left), which will see his name appear on the Ligue 2 club's away and third kits from now until the end of the season.
As well as being a fan of autotune, Yanns is a lifelong Metz supporter and will be hoping that the club will be able to secure promotion back to the top flight at the end of the current campaign. The sponsorship only applies to the away and third kits, while the home will feature the usual sponsors.
