Leading Mexican Liga MX football club Cruz Azul has switched its kit supplier from Under Armour to Joma for the second half of the season in a three-year deal.
The Mexican club season is divided into two championships – the Torneo Apertura and the Torneo Clausura – each identical in format and contested by the same 18 teams.
Cruz Azul wore Under Armor for the 2018 Torneo Apertura, won by rival club América in a two-legged play-off final against Cruz Azul in December.
US-based Under Armour has supplied Cruz Azul for the last five seasons but has scaled back on its major football investments since 2017.
Brazilian Campeonato Série A club São Paulo and English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur have also parted company with the brand in the last 18 months.
Spain-based Joma currently supplies top-flight LaLiga clubs Villarreal, Getafe and Leganés, as well as Necaxa in the MX League.
