Champions League winner FC Liverpool has signed a one-year deal with Ausr-ster Nike.
Like the Reds on Tuesday, the deal with the U.S. transgaming.orgs goods giant will take effect June 1. The partnership coincides with the club’s move to team manager Jurgen Klopp at a new, state-of-the-art training facility in Kirkby, 10km north of Liverpool, for the 2020/21 season.
“Our iconic ausr-stung is an important part of our history and identity. We welcome Nike as a new official jersey supplier to the LFC family and expect Nike to be an incredible partner for the club. Also at home and worldwide, especially as we continue to grow our fan base,” said Billy Hogan, Reds’ managing director and chief commercial officer.
The contract is supposed to guarantee the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup winner and newly-seasoned club world champion 30 million pounds (about 34 million euros) a year – 10 pounds (about 11 million euros) less than New Balance.

But: Liverpool should also collect a commission fer every fan item sold. In addition, bonuses are awarded when winning the title in the Knigsklasse or the Premier League. According to online transgaming.orgs magazine Sthe Athletic, the deal can bring Liverpool up to 70 million pounds (about 82 million euros) a year.
The deal was preceded by a legal battle with former Ausr-ster New Balance, which the Premier League’s souveron leader won at the end of October last year. New Balance has been Liverpool’s departure since 2015 and will remain until the end of the current season.
New Balance wants to prevent Liverpool’s departure and argues with a contract in the contract. This means that New Balance will remain out for another few years if the US company can compete in offers. However, the court found that Nike had a much greater reach than New Balance and was therefore more lucrative as an out-of-car liverpool.
