Portsmouth Football Club have shared the exciting news that they’ve struck up a three-year deal with Nike that will see the sportswear giant become Pompey’s official kit supplier from the start of the 2018/2019 season.
A new retail operations contract has also been signed with Just Sport, Nike’s retail partner. Just Sport have a wealth of experience in their industry, and they’ll be rolling out a premium service for Pompey fans.
Portsmouth Football Club will unveil the location of an exciting new club store in the near future.
Commercial Director Anna Mitchell said: “The club are delighted to be partnering with arguably the most premium sports brand in the world and are hugely excited about the launch of the new apparel.
“We believe that our fans will be thrilled with the standard of design and quality that Nike are able to deliver.
“The club are delighted to be partnering with arguably the most premium sports brand in the world.
““We are also confident that the new partnership will not only deliver great kits and leisurewear, but also provide value for money, as both parties have worked hard to keep prices as competitive as possible.”
Due to tight production deadlines, designs for the 2018/19 playing kit have already been chosen, and the manufacturing process is already underway. Hence the lack of fan vote for this season — something that will return in next season’s campaign.
A spokesperson from Nike UK/Ire Football said: “Nike UK/IRE, alongside Just Sport Pro Club, are excited to partner with Portsmouth Football Club — a club with a strong community-based identity, a proud heritage, passionate fans and an exciting future.
“We are looking forward to providing a high level range of playing, training, and leisure wear for the club’s players and fan-base in what we are sure will be a successful partnership.”
