German Bundesliga football club VfB Stuttgart has entered into a partnership with sportswear manufacturer Jako.
The German company has agreed a four-year deal with the club, which will begin with the 2019-20 season. Jako will replace fellow German firm Puma in the role.
Jako will provide kit and other apparel for Stuttgart’s senior teams and youth sides. The company will also serve as an official partner and the presenter of the VfB School of Football.
Jochen Röttgermann, director of marketing and sales at Stuttgart, said: “We undertook an extensive probing of the market and held countless discussions in search of the best solution for VfB. Jako is a company on the up and up, with, just as VfB, their roots in the region and that follow ambitious targets.
“Jako is a highly professional outfitter and they have guaranteed their support for our professional team, through to the children from the VfB School of Football. In the overall package of outfitting and sponsoring, that means improved financial takings, which we intend to follow along with our sporting ambitions.”
