Everton extends with kit supplier Umbro in multi-year deal

Premier League football club Everton has extended its technical partnership with football apparel and shoe brand Umbro in a multi-year deal.

Under the new agreement, Umbro UK will continue to provide the cub with kit and training wear for the men’s, women’s and academy teams.

Everton first wore Umbro kit in the 1970s. The current five-year deal runs from 2014-15 to 2018-19.

Sam Lucas, head of sports sponsorship at Umbro UK, said: “We have a proud history working together and it’s great that we can continue that relationship with such an ambitious club.”

The extended partnership begins at the start of the 2019-20 season, with the club’s new kits to be unveiled in the close season.

Last month, the club announced an enhanced deal with the licensed sports merchandise brand Fanatics, which will make the Umbro-branded kit and merchandise available in more markets.
