Red Bull Salzburg Sign Nike Kit Deal

Austrian 2013-14 league champions Red Bull Salzburg signed a new kit deal with the US-giant Nike, replacing Adidas.

The new Nike Red Bull Kit contract also includes the kits of the partner club RB Leipzig, who will play in the 2.Bundesliga next season, promoted from the third division. Curiously, as Adidas is the exclusive kit supplier of the MLS until 2018, Red Bull New York will still receive Adidas Kits.

Therefore, Adidas and Nike kit will design respectively kits with a similar design. That makes it possible to compare the efforts of the two biggest sport brands designing the new Red Bull Kits.
