Atlético Mineiro switches from Topper to Le Coq Sportif

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A football team Atlético Mineiro has appointed French sportswear and equipment company Le Coq Sportif as its new kit partner.

The move comes after Atlético opted for an early end to its existing contract with Brazilian brand Topper.

Atlético announced yesterday (Sunday) that full details behind the new deal will be revealed at a later date, but said Le Coq Sportif will begin producing kit this year.

In December 2016, Topper agreed a deal to replace Canadian apparel provider Dryworld as the club’s kit supplier. The four-year deal was due to run from 2017 to 2020.

However, the Globo Esporte website said Topper was not meeting Atlético’s production demands, with Le Coq Sportif promising to supply a more complete range of sportswear and apparel.
