Argentinian Basketball Confederation swaps Kappa for Nike in new kit deal

The Argentinian Basketball Confederation (CABB) has agreed a four-year kit deal with US sportswear firm Nike.

Nike, through its Jordan Brand, will replace Italian sportswear company Kappa in the role, with the deal set to extend through to the end of 2020.

Nike Jordan will become the official athletic apparel sponsor for all Argentinian national basketball teams including men’s and women’s senior and youth teams. The partnership represents the second national team sponsorship for Nike in Argentina and the first for Jordan Brand.

The CABB joins Argentina’s rugby union team and football clubs including Boca Juniors, San Lorenzo and Rosario Central on the Nike Argentina roster.

Nike’s deal with the CABB will take in the 2019 World Cup, which is being hosted by China, and the 2020 summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
