2015-16 Premier League Most Valuable Kits

What are the most valuable kits in the 2015-16 Premier League? ESPN FC ranked all 20 Premier League teams based on the combined worth of their kit maker and sponsorship deals.



While the big players such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United receive millions of pounds from the kit supplier and main sponsor, smaller clubs such as AFC Bournemouth are glad to receive a seven-digit sum per season.

Arsenal earns the third-most from their five-year Puma Kit Deal ($47m / £30m) and Fly Emirates Sponsorship Deal ($47m / £30m) while Liverpool (£53m - New Balance £28m | Standard Chartered £25m) and Manchester City (£52m - Nike £12m | Etihad £40m) complete the top five.

Sixth-placed Tottenham just earns as little as half of fifth-placed Manchester City (£26m - Under Armour £10m | AIA £16m), and seventh-placed Everton reaps just $17.6m (£11.3m) per year.

There is a great inequality in kit deals and sponsorship deals in the Premier League, which is compensated with the lucrative TV distribution deals. Does it makes sense for smaller clubs to have a kit sponsor if it's only a small fraction of the revenues stream? Let us know in the comments below.
