Borussia Dortmund close to €300m Puma kit extension
The German brand has been the official kit supplier to Dortmund since 2012, with its current agreement with the Bundesliga team – worth €10 million (US$11.2 million) a year – not due to expire until the end of the 2021/22 season.
However, SportBild reports that, if a deal is reached, the new agreement will come into effect from July 2020, lasting through to 2030.
Carsten Cramer, Borussia Dortmund’s Managing Director, told SportBild: “We are in good and targeted talks with Puma, in which we have recently come very close. We do not comment on numbers. But what I can say [is] Borussia Dortmund will conclude a much more valuable contract than before.”
Dortmund have already made a number of other commercial ventures in 2019, extending their deal with energy drink Effect, signing an official partnership with TikTk and announcing a behind-the-scenes documentary with Amazon.
