Teams led Marbella advertising on their shirts and maybe you do not remember
Marbella was very present in Spanish football in the years 90. Jesus Gil, President of Atletico Madrid since 1987 until 2001, managed mayor of the city 1991 and he did not hesitate when promoting it. We review some of the teams that wore this name on their shirts.
Like is logic, the club colchonero was the first to stamp the name of Marbella in the red and white fur coat. In fact, for those of us who knew football in 90 it was something as Atlético as the colors themselves.
SEVILLA FOOTBALL CLUB
The tentacles of Jesus Gil began to expand the brand Marbella for the rest of the Spanish League. A) Yes, Sevilla put this name on their shirt in a couple of seasons mid the decade of the 90.
The Seville outfit was not the only one to screen-print their shirt with Marbella. Its Betic neighbors also did it and walked the name of the Andalusian city throughout Spain.
The list starts to get pretty ‘heavy’. Far from settling for sponsoring Andalusian teams, Marbella It was also placed on the shirt of a team as far from the city as the Real Valladolid.
If they thought the list ended with soccer, they were very wrong. One of the strangest sponsorships was the Youth of Badalona. The ACB basketball team not only affixed the name to his jersey, it was renamed Marbella Youth.
JESUS GIL AND THE ‘CASE T-SHIRTS’
Finally, Jesus Gil, top leader of the Atletico Madrid and mayor of the city of Marbella was sentenced by the Malaga Court to 28 years of disqualification for prevarication and diversion of public funds to the coffers of the club. Like is logic, this sentence caused him to leave the mayor's office in the year 2002.
