Arsenal Signs £300m Deal with Adidas Next Season

LONDON, NNC – There will be no more Puma logo on Arsenal jerseys next season as the North London city club now has a new sponsor after establishing a giant value contract with Adidas.

Puma is the second brand to have worked with Arsenal since 2014. Before the Gunners were synonymous with US sport manufacturer, Nike. Arsenal reportedly paid Puma a whopping £30 million per season or around IDR 595 billion.

Unfortunately, the collaboration between Puma and Arsenal only lasted five years as Arsenal decided to separate with Puma at the beginning of the 2019-20 season. According to its official website, the club has just signed a deal with Puma's major rival, Adidas,  both originating from Germany.

According to British media reports, Adidas is paying Arsenal around £300 million or around IDR 5.9 trillion for a five-year contract effective from July 1 2019, which is double the contract from the previous Puma deal.

With a contract value of that size, Arsenal is recorded to be the club with the second biggest sponsorship earning in England after Manchester United (MU). If Arsenal earns £60 million per year, then MU, also sponsored by Adidas, will also receive a contract worth 75 million per year.

Arsenal is no stranger to Adidas as the club had been sponsored by it since the 1986 season to the 1994 season, before finally turning to Nike.
