Inter to Sign Record-breaking Etihad Shirt Sponsorship Deal

According to reports in Italy, Inter Milan are set to sign a new shirt sponsorship deal with Etihad Airways worth €125 million over five years.

Pirelli to Leave Inter Kit After More Than 20 Years

The deal would more than double the current contract Inter has with Pirelli (€12 million / year), the Milan-based company that has been Inter's shirt sponsor since 1995. Etihad Airways already sponsors several other high-profile football clubs including Manchester City.

As the current Inter Pirelli jersey sponsorship contract is due to expire after the current season, Etihad's reign would commence with the 2016-17 season.

The €25 million the new Inter shirt sponsorship deal is expected to be worth would make it the highest-valued in the whole of Serie A, ahead of Sassuolo (Mapei, €22 million / year) and Juventus and Milan, who both receive around €17 million a year from Jeep and Emirates, respectively.
