In what has been heralded as the football club’s largest commercial deal to date, Chelsea has signed a new kit deal with US sportswear giants Nike.

The deal is reported to be worth £60m a season for the next 15 years.

Nike will provide the London club’s kit from the 2017-18 season. The news comes after the Premier League team said in May it was ending its Adidas deal six years early.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “We believe Nike will be able to support our growth into new markets as well as helping us maintain our place among the world’s elite football clubs.”

“Like Chelsea, Nike is known around the world for its excellence and innovation and we look forward to working together in what is sure to be a successful partnership. We believe Nike will be able to support our growth into new markets as well as helping us maintain our place among the world’s elite football clubs.”

Trevor Edwards, president of the Nike brand, said: “Chelsea is a world-class club with a rich tradition and passionate fans across the globe. The partnership with Chelsea reinforces our leadership position in football. We are excited to help grow the club’s global reach, serving players and supporters with Nike innovation and design.”
