Liverpool To Sign Record Kit Deal With Adidas

Liverpool are in talks with Adidas to seal a record Premier League kit deal, with club officials looking to eclipse Manchester United's £75million-a-year agreement with the American kit company.

The Anfield club's present kit deal with New Balance expires at the end of the 2019-20 season and reports have it that talks to extend the existing deal under improved terms have already begun.

Liverpool's present deal is worth £45m-a-year – but while the club and American kit company consider the agreement a huge success – it is understood New Balance will have to increase their sponsorship bid by at least £30m a year for it to continue.

Owners Fenway have overseen immense progress at the club since signing a kit deal with Warrior at the beginning of the 2012-13 season – before the sponsorship switched to parent company New Balance ahead of the 2015-16 season.

Since the New Balance deal was brokered, Liverpool have appointed Jurgen Klopp, who has built an extremely talented squad and overseen a thrilling brand of football.


  1. Manchester United – £75m
  2. Chelsea – £60m
  3. Liverpool – £45m
  4. Manchester City – £41m
  5. Arsenal – £30m
  6. Tottenham – £30m

Liverpool were also listed in the world's top five strongest football brands in The Football 50 table, conducted by Brand Finance during the summer.

Arsenal start a five-year deal with Adidas worth £300m in the summer, while Chelsea signed a 15-year deal with Nike in 2016 worth £900m. Manchester City have signed a £50m a year deal with Puma starting next season.
