The contract is expected to be worth between about £80 million per year. The existing deal with New Balance was worth around £40 million a year.
Fans are hyped about this move. As along with the additional revenue, it’s also expected to bring more prestige. Nike is the most valuable brand in the Sports business. While Liverpool are arguably the current best club in the world. Their partnership makes sense both commercial and sporting wise.
