A football club in Mexico has decided to replace the players' names on the back of their shirts with their Twitter handles instead.

The unique move sees Mexican Primera Division side Jaguares de Chiapas's star players put their twitter addresses underneath their numbers along with the Twitter handle of the club sponsor.

It follows a move by Liga side Valencia who recently put the club's Twitter address at the front of their shirts.

Jaguares are one of the newest clubs in Mexican football and were only founded in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, in the state of Chiapas in 2002.

They currently lie in an impressive sixth position in the Mexican league table - just five points behind leaders Guadalajara.

See pictures of their new shirts in the pictures below.
