Germany to Sign Nike Kit Deal?

According to, Germany could still switch from Adidas to Nike, although the most recent reports earlier this year suggested that a renewal with the Three Stripes was all but confirmed.

Nike Makes €60m Offer For Germany Kit

Reportedly Nike has finally made a written offer to Germany and is ready to pay between €60 and 70 million a year to produce the Germany jerseys from 2018. Additionally, Nike proposed to put the Germany national team at the top of its priority list and make it part of its global advertising campaigns. Last but not least, Nike offered to sell the Germany shirts exclusively through the official federation store and select Nike stores, guaranteeing extra income for the DFB.

Thanks to a clause in its contract with the national team, Adidas which currently pays around €25 million a year as Germany kit supplier, has the right to match any other offer the national team receives.

Interestingly, thanks to a decision of the German antitrust court, the new Germany kit contract will be limited to a duration of up to six years and won't include any "matching offer right" clause.

DFB itself did not want to confirm or deny Nike's offer and only stated that it would be in "constructive negotiations." According to the report, the final decision will be made during the Euro in France next month. Expect an announcement on the next Germany shirt supplier shortly after.
