Nike confirms end of Man United kit sponsorship
Nike confirms that it will not sponsor Manchester United's kits after the 2014-15 season
Nike has confirmed that it will not sponsor Manchester United’s kits after the 2014-15 season.
The sportswear giant, who has supplied the Red Devils kits since 2002, has decided against continuing its relationship with the Premier League club.
“Manchester United is a great club with passionate fans,” Nike said in a statement.
“We are proud to have partnered with them for the last 12 years and will continue to sponsor the club until the end of the 2014-15 season.
“Any partnership with a club or federation has to be mutually beneficial and the terms that were on offer for a renewed contract did not represent good value for Nike’s shareholders.
“We look forward to a successful final season with the club.”
The news comes in the same week that Manchester United unveiled their new home kit for the 2014-15 season.
