Kappa scores return to Napoli

Italian Serie A football club Napoli has agreed a five-year kit supplier deal with sportswear company Kappa.

The agreement is effective from the 2015-16 season and runs through until 2019-20.

Financial terms were not officially disclosed although the partnership is reported to be worth in the region of €8m ($8.6m) per season.

Kappa previously supplied kits to Napoli between 2004 and 2006 before making way for fellow Italian company Diadora. It replaces Macron as Napoli’s sportswear partner.

The deal was confirmed by Kappa’s parent company BasicNet, which said in a statement: “In addition to the usual business of providing technical kit and development of merchandising, collaborations are planned to extend the brand enhancement of Napoli. (The club) will benefit from the important network of business partners developed for the Kappa brand by GruppoBasicNet around the world.”
