A renewal that smashes all records between Barcelona and Nike; the full details are not yet official, but the Spanish press report a sponsorship agreement whose value eclipses the partnership between Adidas and Manchester United of €95 million per season. The blaugrana announced this morning the renewal until 2028, of the contract with the Nike, which has lasted since 1998.
The new agreement, which will be ratified at the next general assembly will see Barcelona earning up to €155 million euros per season. As reported in the Spanish press agency, EFE, the Spanish champions will collect over the course of next season (still covered by the previous contract expiring on 30 June 2018) €80 million compared to the current €60 million before increasing this to €85 million from the 2017/18 season. And that’s not everything; from season 2018/19, Barcelona will receive from Nike a fixed amount of €105 million per season in respect of the licensing of its stores that until now has been ceded to Nike.
