Arsenal have announced a new long-term partnership with Puma which will see the company become the Barclays Premier League club’s official kit suppliers from July 2014.
Although no official figures were confirmed on Monday,
the commercial deal has been described as “the biggest deal in Puma and Arsenal’s history”.
The Gunners are understood to receive around £30million a year from main sponsors Emirates Airlines, and it has been reported the new deal will be for a similar amount when Puma takes over from Nike, who Arsenal have partnered since 1994.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: “We are excited to be partnering with Puma, a company whose football heritage and record of innovation have a strong affinity with our own.”
“This represents another important step forward in Arsenal’s progression on and off the pitch.”
