Everton have confirmed that a new three-year sponsorship deal with sports apparel giants Nike has been struck, representing a massive coup for the club.
The US-based company, who have replaced Le Coq Sportif as the Blues' sponsor, will be responsible for designing both the official match and training kits for the next three seasons.
Toffees chief executive Robert Elstone expressed his excitement at the prospect of the partnership.
He told the club's official website: “Following all the speculation of the past few months, we are delighted to confirm that Everton is about to kick-off a new, three-year partnership with the world’s leading sportswear brand.
“We’re all excited by the prospect of working with Nike’s design, marketing and retailing teams and look forward to seeing some impressive, original kits and products, as well as being on hand to take advantage of new retail opportunities that we’ll be working with Kitbag to drive forward.
“Nike has an impeccable reputation and we are confident that our supporters will be excited by the new partnership, with all of us looking forward to seeing our new home shirt this summer.”
