Update: Adidas to Sign Italy Kit Deal - Adidas To Take Over After 2022 World Cup?

Update: Italian newspaper La Repubblica today reports that "the new agreement with Adidas would be valid from 2023 and can help the FIGC get some extra money to convince Mancini to extend his contract with the Azzurri." This means that Italy's 2022 World Cup kits would be still made by Puma.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) "will get at least 23 million Euro / year from Adidas, but there are those who hypothesize as much as 35 million Euro / year". Puma is paying 19 million Euro a year.

Italy and Puma are set to part company, we can exclusively reveal - according to our source Adidas will take over and make the kits of the Italian national football team from 2022 onwards.

Puma have been making Italy's kits since 2004 and their partnership was renewed in a seven-year contract signed in March 2015. Back then, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) just said that the deal allows Puma to produce the Italy Football Kits "into the next decade".

As reported by our source, Adidas will make Italy's kits from 2022.

Adidas already made Italy' kits for a four-year span in the mid-1970s, from 1974 until 1978. The kits back then did feature neither the Adidas logo nor the famous Three Stripes, however.
