Melbourne United's Jersey Sponsor

It seems that every game Melbourne has a different banners sponsor on their jersey. And unlike when Adelaide had sponsor changes last season and covered them with tape they seem to be getting new kits with each sponsor change.
Now are they lucky that the team owners son owns the kit company or do they have poor marketing not to have a major sponsor?
And how many sets do the other teams get?

They were sponsored by Delos for at least a few games. Westworld!

Do you need to be related to the CEO of the jersey manufacturer to print the sponsor on the jersey? Or is it just a matter of having your Marketing team engage a local fabric printer in a timely manner and have the next sponsor lined up.

NBL conspiracy vs providing sponsor details early to the printer...

Having said that it looks ridiculous when a new import arrives and has no name on the back of the jersey??

But only the licensed manufacturer can make the uniforms. Even if you get a local company to print screen a logo how many blank ones would you have to begin with?

I wouldn't know how many Jerseys are allocated to each team but I would think it would be the same? Regardless its a good initiative for Make a Wish Foundation.

They sell them individually as match day partners which allows you to control within the stadium. Much more profitable to sell individually home games for say 50-100K then have one sponsor for 500K
