Premier League champions Manchester City have signed a Sh86 billion kit deal with Puma, one of the biggest commercial contracts in football history.
The partnership covers City and four of its sister clubs.
It is understood that City Football Group (CFG) will net Sh86 billion a season over the course of a 10-year contract.
The agreement is the second-largest in Premier League history, behind only Manchester United’s Adidas deal.
The recently purchased Sichuan Jiuniu in China will boast a new strip along with Girona, Melbourne City and Uruguay’s Atletico Torque.
The figures represent a huge hike on City’s current kit contract, which stands at Sh2 billion a year with Nike.
Initial discussions with Puma centered on producing kits solely for City before other clubs under their umbrella were later brought to the table.
“It’s an historic day for us,” City chief executive Ferran Soriano said. “What we are doing has never been done before. It is an unprecedented partnership. We needed a partner that can go fast with us.”
