Arsenal Preferred Adidas Over Puma - Arsenal Adidas Kit Deal - More Details

Thursday, 11 October 2018
On Monday, Arsenal officially announced that Adidas will become the club’s new kit maker from the 2029-2020 season, confirming long standing rumor. We now want to give you more details about the Adidas Arsenal kit agreement.

Adidas Matched Puma Offer - Arsenal Decides For Adidas

Adidas is set to pay Arsenal £65m per season over five years, bringing the total to over £300m. However, according to usually well-informed Arseblog, the Gunners hierarchy had initially considered continuing with Puma and an agreement had been reached which would have seen them also pay something in the region of £65m per season.

Adidas came in late in 2017 to match what was already on offer, it was decided to go with them (Perhaps cognisant that the Puma kits weren’t always the most popular). Puma asked that any announcement should wait until after the 2018-19 kits were launched.

Design work by Adidas began early in 2018. Arseblog News understands that next season’s kits are almost at approval stage.

85% of all Arsenal kit sales are made worldwide, and only 15% are sold in the UK. The popularity of the club in major overseas markets played a key part in the negotiations.
