Major Kit Supplier Switches Incoming in International Football?

Between now and the end of 2024, we are likely to see many major national teams announce new kit sponsors.

Big National Teams Conduct Kit Tenders

In addition to Germany, which has completed the bidding process for its kit, Brazil and France are still bidding to find a new kit supplier in 2024.

Germany - Nike

DFB has completed the kit bidding process and Nike will be Germany's kit supplier from 2027. This means that Germany will last wear Adidas kits at the 2026 World Cup and then Nike kits at Euro 2028 and future tournaments.

France

France's current contract with Nike is worth €50.5 million a year and runs until the end of 2026. The FFF is looking for a new kit supplier in the hope of securing an 8-year deal. Adidas and Puma are reported to go in the battle for the France kit deal.

Brazil

The Nike Brazil deal is worth about 35.5 million US Dollar per year, which is a third of what Germany will get from Nike. Brazil already wanted to renegotiate its deal with Nike two years ago, but apparently, the same contract still applies today. Now, similar to Germany and France, the CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) is starting a kit tender.

Other Big National Teams

It is not only Brazil, France, and Germany that need a new kit supplier contract for 2027 and beyond. Belgium, Nigeria, and the Netherlands are also free from 2027.

Morocco

Unlike the aforementioned national teams, Morocco's current contract with Puma expires in August 2024. Adidas is likely to replace Puma as Morocco's new kit sponsor

Netherlands

The current contract between the Netherlands and Nike runs until the end of 2026. Therefore, the KNVB (Royal Dutch Football Association) may also be planning to find a new shirt sponsor for the Netherlands from 2027 onwards.

Nike has been supplying the Netherlands with kits since 1997. Their partnership will reach 30 years in 2026. Adidas has supplied kits to the Netherlands before, but Puma has never.

Argentina

Argentina's original contract with Adidas ran until 2022, but was obviously extended. There is currently no exact information on when Adidas Argentina's contract will expire, but it could be the end of 2026. Argentina could therefore be looking for a new kit supplier from 2027 onwards.

After failing to extend its contract with Germany, Adidas is likely to be determined to retain the major national teams, particularly World Cup champion Argentina.

Belgium

Like the Netherlands & Argentina, Belgium's current contract with Adidas expires in 2026. This could be the right time for Belgium to look for a new shirt supplier from 2027.

Nigeria

Like most of the national teams mentioned above, Nigeria's current contract with Nike runs until 2026.. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is expected to seek a new shirt sponsor for 2027 and beyond in the coming months.

Only Nike and Adidas have supplied kits to Nigeria in the past. Adidas can therefore compete with Nike to become the new kit supplier to the NFF.

Uruguay

Uruguay is even without a kit maker currently - the country produces its kits in-house.

Footy Headlines does not yet have any information on whether or not Uruguay will be looking for a new kit supplier.
