Current Premier League champions, Manchester City, have agreed a deal with Puma to become the official kit supplier from the 2019/20 season. The deal is worth £50m per-year and will make City one of the top kit earners in world football – behind Barcelona (£100m), Manchester United (£75m) and Chelsea (£60m).
The agreement is set to extend to all clubs under the City Football Group family including: La Liga side Girona, Australia’s Melbourne City, Japan’s Yokohama F Marinos and Uruguayan outfit CA Torque. New York City are the only CFG side exempt from the deal, as the MLS has a league-wide contract with Adidas, preventing teams from signing their own kit supplier.
The announcement will please City fans who have reportedly been left unimpressed by the ‘generic templates’ that Nike have used in the past few seasons.
