Premier League club Everton announced its multi-year kit sponsorship deal with football brand Umbro from next season. The announcement was made by the club on its official website. The Blues will continue to wear the famous double diamond brand, with Umbro UK providing the club with technical kit and training wear for the men’s, ladies and Academy teams as well as for fans.
Everton and Umbro’s partnership goes back to the 1970s and over the last five decades, Umbro has produced many classic designs for The Toffees. According to reports in Liverpool Echo no details about the value of the new deal with Umbro have been released but the existing contract was valued at £6m per year.
Everton’s Commercial Director Alan McTavish said: “Umbro has a strong football heritage and we are confident that they will continue to provide our teams with bespoke kit designs and great-looking, technically advanced training wear.”
Sam Lucas, Head of Sports Sponsorship at Umbro UK, added: “We’re delighted to extend our technical partnership with Everton. We have a proud history working together and it’s great that we can continue that relationship with such an ambitious club. We’re really looking forward to delivering more memorable kits for the fans.”
The extended partnership begins at the start of the 2019-20 season, with the Club’s new kits to be unveiled in the close season.
