Adidas want to be the kit supplier of at least two of Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool from 2025, according to a report.
Footy Headlines report that an insider has informed them Adidas are hoping to supply two of Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool from 2025, or all three if possible.
Arsenal’s current deal with Adidas expires in 2024, so they’re edging closer to an extension or a new supplier. Manchester United are also already with Adidas until 2025, but Liverpool are currently with Nike until 2025.
With Chelsea, Manchester City, and Tottenham Hotspur all tied down for the much longer term, Adidas’ main route to becoming the Premier League’s top kit supplier is through the three red members of the big six.
If Adidas are looking to get at least two of the three tied down past 2025, and Arsenal are the first ones to see their deal expire, you’d imagine they’re going to push pretty hard to get the Gunners to extend.
Miss out on Arsenal, and you’re putting all your eggs in the other two baskets.
From a fan point of view, it would probably be a popular decision for Adidas to extend their contract with Arsenal, assuming it was at a favourable rate.
The kits of recent seasons have proven popular with supporters, and next year’s leaks look like more of the same on that front.
