With 90 points on the board and an eight point lead over West Brom, you’d think the news really couldn’t get any better for Leeds. But it has been confirmed with an announcement on the club’s official website that Adidas will replace Kappa as the club’s kit supplier from next season.
Angus Kinnear, chief executive of Leeds, said of the news: “We are delighted that adidas has become our official kit partner.
“We look forward to a return to the Premier League next season and the partnership with Adidas, one of the most recognizable names in the game, represents a new beginning for the club.
“At Leeds United we continue to grow on and off the pitch and this record deal is another important step for the club.”
The deal has been described as a record-breaking deal for Leeds, with Adidas producing both playing and training kits over the next five years. The partnership is the first time the two organizations have worked together, a surprise given the Whites’ status in the English game.
Leeds will be joined by the likes of Real Madrid in an adidas/Vision Haas/Getty Images partnership.
While an official kit release date is yet to be announced, Leeds confirmed that all apparel will be available at Elland Road Superstore, selected stores and the club’s official website, as well as adidas’ own platform.
