Arsenal have agreed on a new sponsorship deal with Adidas that will come into effect in July 2019. While that may seem like a long time to wait for new kits, given the weight of the deal itself, it certainly feels like it’s worth it. We haven’t heard all too much more about the specifics but when you consider just how notable Adidas is as a company, we’re confident in saying that it’ll be worth the wait.
Football kits may not be seen as an important factor in the game by many, but in reality, they’re so much more than just money-making devices. The colour and design of your team’s kit represent its identity in more ways than one throughout the course of any given season, and because of that, they’ll always be interesting.
When it comes to Arsenal, the club have attempted to re-define the meaning of the kit for a few years now. They’ve moved away from the red and white, gone back to it, added in new colours – and they’ve done that with a variety of different kit manufacturers. Over the last few years they’ve stuck to Puma, but as reported by Daily Mail, it seems as if a multi-million-pound switch to Adidas is on the table.
