Umbro nets four-year term with Ligue 1’s Nantes

UK sportswear manufacturer Umbro has sealed a four-year kit deal with French Ligue 1 football club Nantes.

Effective from the start of the 2014-15 season, Umbro will provide home and away strips and training wear for the eight-time French champion.

Umbro replaces Errea as Nantes’ kit supplier – the latter company having replaced fellow Italian brand Kappa from the 2011-12 season onwards.

Nantes is currently placed 14th in the Ligue 1 standings, eight points above the relegation zone with seven matches of the current campaign remaining. It returned to the French top flight for the first time since 2009 by securing promotion from Ligue 2 last term.
