This release comes amidst rumours that Liverpool are looking for new kit sponsors
Word around the campfire is that Liverpool are eyeing a mammoth deal with Nike. Manchester United currently holds the biggest kit sponsorship contract in the Premier League with Adidas, for a purported 750 million pounds. Liverpool is looking to ink a bigger deal with rival company Nike that will overshadow Adidas and United’s current deal.
New Balance’s current deal will expire at the end of next season and Liverpool are looking towards newer horizons. However, with fans appreciating NB’s work and with NB posting record stock clearances, the management is sure to be in a dilemma.
