Leeds United have agreed a major new kit deal with sportswear giants adidas, commencing when Leeds’ Kappa deal expires at the end of this season. According to report in the Daily Mail - it has been suggested to be the case by Phil Hay at The Athletic for a few months now.
It will be the first-time that Leeds have had a kit made by adidas, who were founded in Germany in 1949, and fans are excited about the prospect.
Rumoured for a while and you've got to be happy with it. They make quality gear. Love my Copa Mundial's . Need to make sure we are gracing the Premier League with our nice new snazzy kit though. Results tonight have gone our way. Now let's capitalise Leeds!! #lufc— Zak Lewis (@ZakLewis17) January 22, 2020
The value of the deal will change depending on which league Leeds are in, but the Whites are attractive proposition either way due to their high replica shirt sales.
It’s a daft romantic idea, but we have to get promoted now so Bielsa can go to Morrisons in his Adidas tracksuit. He was made for Adidas. #LUFC— The Square Ball (@TheSquareBall) January 22, 2020
The report also says that Leeds are likely to be looking for a new shirt sponsorship deal if (and we know how big an if it is) Leeds get promoted, despite the deal with 32Red having another year to run.
