Umbro to replace Nike as Werder Bremen’s kit partner

German Bundesliga football club Werder Bremen has announced that UK sportswear manufacturer Umbro will serve as its kit supplier from the 2018-19 season onwards.

The initial five-year deal will run until the end of the 2022-23 campaign. Umbro will replace US sportswear giant Nike as the club’s kit partner following the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.

Umbro will provide kits for all of Werder’s teams as part of the agreement.

“With Umbro we will be kitted out from 2018-19 onwards by a brand that, like SV Werder, can look back on a long footballing history,” Klaus Filbry, the club’s chairman of the board, said. “With this supplier switch we want to continue on our chosen path and further boost the Werder brand positively and emotionally on a domestic and international scale.”

Werder currently sits 14th in the Bundesliga after 23 games of the 2016-17 season.
