Arsenal sign 30M a year kit deal with Puma

8 05 2013

After months of speculation it has finally come to light that Arsenal will be severing their 20 year connection with Nike when the current kit deal expires in 2014.

It has long been suspected that the Gunners would make the switch to Adidas if a new deal couldn’t be agreed with Nike however it would seem they have been pipped to the post by rivals Puma with a staggering 30 million plus a year deal potentially worth 170M over the 5 year course of the contract.

This deal will dwarfs Liverpool’s 25mill a year arrangement with Warrior and see the Gunners sitting top of the tree for kit deals in English sport.

The news of this massive new kit deal follows hot on the heels of Emirates renewing their sponsorship of Arsenal with a bumper new deal.

 

Happy times fellow gooners, happy times 🙂

Adidas to become new kit supplier for Arsenal

11 07 2012

The word on the street this morning is that from as early as 2013/2014 Adidas are going to replace Nike as the official kit supplier for Arsenal.

David Gubala, an Adidas employee, tweeted Tuesday.

Gubala made sure to include that the proposed partnership is currently “in the making.”

Adidas have provided the Gunners with their kit in the past but not since as far back in the mists of time as the  93/94 season.

For those of you with shorter memories than mine Adidas gave us some truly great kits:
