  • A "Blockbuster" Deal

    Arsenal’s "long-promised sunny commercial uplands appear to be taking shape as adidas prepares a blockbuster bid" to take over the club's kit deal from rival Nike, according to Matt Scott of the London TELEGRAPH. The Nike shirt deal expires in '13-14, and adidas’ interest "is set at least to double the £13M ($21M) a year" Arsenal earns from it. Arsenal fans buy 800,000 shirts every year, "making them the third-biggest draw in Nike’s portfolio" after ManU and Barcelona. Adidas dropped Liverpool last season "after growing frustrated with the club's demands over an extension" and is keen to find a new partner of similar stature.
