Premier League side Arsenal will start a sponsorship deal with top sports brand Adidas from July 1 one year from now, which will reportedly see the North-London club earn a whopping sum of £60million per season.
Adidas will take over kit supplier from Puma, whose five-year deal with the Gunners expires towards the end of the season. Puma are reported for to wind up as Manchester City’s new kit from next season, in a contract deal worth £50m per annum.
A yearly £60m kit-deal would put Arsenal third in the most lucrative deals in football, behind Barcelona’s contract with Nike and Manchester United’s with Adidas which are worth £140m-a-year and £75m-a-year respectively.
The Gunners last wore an Adidas strip between 1986 and 1994 amid the season which they lifted two league titles. Nike at that point sponsored Arsenal for two decades until 2014-15, when they missed out to the present Puma deal.
