Could it be possible that these clubs are paying ISC to make their gear, and seeing as though they aren’t getting any sponsorship money from them, they don’t want them advertising themselves on the front of their strip?
Why is it on the Polos and other merch though, and St Kilda had a sponsorship announcement so they are definitely got a deal with ISC.

I think they may have uploaded the wrong photo
The image had a broken link so I'm guessing it's been taken down.

Sorry about the quality, I had to use my phone because I'm in a bit of a rush.

The sponsor and crest placement looks shit but I do like the saints stick man on the back and the idea of long sleeves

The double colour cuff and stick man and small club crest make me want to break something. Bring back xblades

I just got a message from the Suns.

I asked them why this is the case and they replied with:

"We can't say too much right now but watch this space, we'll hopefully have some news soon"

More I think about it, the more I think this means there will be a sponsor going there :(

Might be where the dare sponsorship is going. It is being placed there on the training gear and are being listed quite high.

I can't speak for AFL sponsorship, but in the past, in other sports, the manufacturers sternum logo was actually sponsorship.

So once the design process was finishing, and they were finalising sponsorship, the sternum spot was given to the manufacturer with a first refusal option at a massively discounted rate.

So for example, and with 100% made up numbers, they were given the opportunity to place their logo on the sternum @ $50,000, which most would take up.

If they chose not to, they club could then sell the space to another company for $500,000.

That's why a lot of manufacturers logos in the NRL are now on the shoulders.

So in the case of the Suns and Saints, and I'm purely speculating, ISC have chosen not to take the bargain bin sponsorship, for whatever reasons, and it's been on sold to another sponsor

Again, there's no way the AFL allow teams to have extra sponsors in different areas of the jumper, to all other teams. There'd be strict guidelines as to where a spsonsors logo can go, and how many on each jumper (one on front, one on back) No way they just say, ok Suns and Saints, you can put some garbage flavoured milk logo or the like, under the collar, it just won't happen.

Unless say Adidas or someone has bought the space?
Is that even allowed?

Very odd

I hope.they don't open this can of worms...

Yeah I see what you mean, but it'd be hard to police, in the sense that where do you draw the line, and what do you allow and don't allow.

It is really weird, and like someone said earlier, the fit of the suns guernseys look terrible (although all the draftees are wearing retails, so that doesn't help)

The suns comment regarding the lack of isc logo is odd and, as with many on here, will be keeping track and will be most interested on this line of jumper/sponsor newsworthy-ness. This whole thing is just such a strange situation, with multiple clubs believed to be involved, and nobody really knows either why or what is going on here.

Just gotta ask would the AFL knock back a struggling team to make x10 the amount in sponsorship for a spot that would otherwise reamain empty.

Not saying it's the right thing, but the AFL loves it when sponsors pay overs, enhances the product. Only reason to say no would be if the logo is too garish, or a conflict of interest with AFL sponsor.

Wouldn't surprise me if it's a Visit QLD or some GC Tourism deal

of all the clubs to put an additional sponsor on our guernsey, the suns ain't it. we're crying out for sponsors, one season we didn't even have a second major sponsor so the back of our guernsey was empty. hostplus's contract is up and they haven't announced what's going on there, so is huawei.
