Nike and the French soccer federation partnership


KITTED OUT: Nike and the French soccer federation have prolonged their partnership through 2026.

The U.S. sportswear-maker has been kitting out France’s national soccer team players since 2011. Under the new contract, the Fédération Française de Football will also be the official uniform supplier of the country’s amateur soccer team players, the federation said in a statement on Thursday.

The current contract between Nike and the FFF was set to run through 2018. It has reportedly has been bringing in annual revenues to the FFF of 42.6 million euros, or $45.3 million at current exchange rate.

Nike five years ago succeeded Adidas in dressing the French team.

It was revealed at the end of May that Smalto had designed suiting for the players. The French label created made-to-measure suits, shirts and shoes for the team’s 23 sportsmen ahead of the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament, which opened on June 10.
