VfL Wolfsburg To Sign Record-Breaking Nike Kit Deal

German Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg is set to sign a kit deal with US-giant Nike to replace current shirt supplier Kappa, according to the renowned German sports magazine Kicker.

Even though Kappa and VfL Wolfsburg signed a five-year kit deal in 2014 until 2019, a buy-out clause allows the Champions League participant to prematurely terminate the contract with the Italian sports supplier.
