Tottenham and Nike sign record kit deal

Tottenham have confirmed Nike will be the club’s new shirt manufacturer from the start of the 2017/18 season. 

Spurs have agreed a ‘multi-year agreement’ with the sportswear giant which will coincide with the club’s move to a new 61,559-seat stadium on the site of their former White Hart Lane home.

Tottenham will also wear Nike kits during the forthcoming season at Wembley while construction work on the new ground is complete.

Club chairman Daniel Levy said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Nike, one of the world’s leading brands.

“Nike is committed to partnering with us both at home, at a time when our new stadium scheme is the catalyst for the regenration of Tottenham, and globally, with our growing fan base mirrored by Nike’s worldwide reach.”

The deal is thought to be worth £25million-a-year and will cover the men’s, women’s and academy squads; Coaching staff and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation representatives will also be kitted out in Nike gear.

Spurs are the second London club to team up with Nike after the Blues cut short a deal with Adidas to sign a mammoth £60m-a-year deal which will also be in place from the 2017/18 campaign.

Under Armour have been in partnership with Spurs since the 2012/13 season.
