Arsenal’s Emirate Stadium

Arsenal on Monday announced a new kit sponsorship deal with Adidas, which will take effect from next season.

It was gathered that the agreement, which is worth around £300 million over five years, becomes active from July 1, 2019.

It is claimed the new deal will bring in double that which they have earned from Puma since 2014, although it is still less than the reported £75m per year Manchester United earn from Adidas.

Arsenal’s last kit deal with the German sportswear giants was back in the 1993-94 season, two years before Arsene Wenger, the longest-serving manager in the club’s history, took charge.

That relatively short agreement came on the back of two decades of Nike sponsorship.

The club’s decision to get back into a partnership with Adidas has been well received by supporters and former players.
