Aston Villa have secured a long-term deal with Nike, who will become the club’s official sportswear partner from the start of next season.
The deal will see Nike supply Villa’s playing and replica kit, in addition to a full range of branded sportswear and accessories.
Richard FitzGerald, the Villa chief executive, told the club's website: "This is a significant step forward for the club off the field and we’re delighted to have Nike partnering with us. The association will help us to drive the club forward. The brand sits perfectly with the new board’s vision for Aston Villa and we’re looking forward to working with Nike."
Jim Allaker, the vice-president and general manager of Nike UK, said: "Aston Villa is a major club with a fantastic history and a massive fanbase.
"We’re delighted they will be joining the Nike family, which already includes national teams such as Brazil and the Netherlands and clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Celtic and FC Barcelona. We’re very excited to be part of the club’s future."
