On the commercial front MANU have signed a new kit deal with Adidas for a minimum 75 million pounds per year over 10 years. The previous relationship with Nike was for 23.5 million pounds a year. Adidas will provide training and playing kits and have the exclusive right to distribute dual branded merchandising. The deal is better than it sounds as MANU will also bring retail, e-commerce and mono brand products in house rather than share these revenues as they did with Nike. MANU sold approximately 5 million items of branded licensing including 2 million jerseys.
