Brighton & Hove Albion has announced that Nike, the world's leading sportswear brand, will be the club's new kit, teamwear and technical partner from the start of the 2014/15 season.
The club has agreed a multi-year partnership, commencing 1st June 2014, which will see Albion's first, under-21, women’s and youth teams sporting new Nike kit when they report back for pre-season training at the club's new training ground and academy this summer.
Chief executive Paul Barber said, "In securing a long term agreement with Nike, we are delighted to announce another record-breaking partnership for the club. Nike is the leader in football and a huge global brand, which will help lift our club's profile as we continue to develop.
"The new deal represents a significant increase on our existing commercial arrangement, and we are looking forward to working closely with Nike to give our supporters a new kit and exciting product range."
