No More New Balance: Panama Announce Reebok Kit Deal

Panama yesterday announced that they had signed a kit deal with Reebok, who will replace current supplier New Balance in 2023.

The Panama x Reebok kit deal will run for four years according to the official announcement. Apart from that, no details about the partnership were given.

Panama will not take part at 2022 World Cup as Costa Rica overtook them in the later stages of the CONCACAF qualifiers. Therefore, the upcoming friendlies against Bahrain on September 27th and Saudi Arabia on November 10th will likely be the final two times we will see the Panama national football team in New Balance kits.

Reebok were finally sold by Adidas in March and there've been rumors about a return to football for the brand in the form of a deal with Brazilian side Botafogo. That one didn't materialize yet and so the Panama deal is the first to be announced by the brand, who most recently sponsored a football team in the mid-2010s.
