One of the worlds leading sports clothing companies Adidas has signed a 5-year deal with BCCI. The contract is worth 250 Crore in which Adidas will manufacture all the kits of the Indian cricket team across formats. Fans are extremely pleased with the announcement as Adidas shares glimpses of the new Team India jersey.
On Monday, BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced that Adidas will now produce all the match kits and training kits. The tenure will end on March 2028 until then Adidas will sponsor all the BCCI merchandise.
Earlier BCCI had a tie-up with MPL Sports and KKCL’s Killer however both these Indian brands only managed to keep the rights for just 3 years.
Adidas will pay 75 lakhs per match to BCCI
The German brand is all set to pay a hefty amount of money to Indian Cricket Board. However, the figures are still slightly lower than Nike who at that time paid 88 lakhs per match to BCCI back in 2020. Adidas and Nike are having a bitter-sweet rivalry between them across sports hopefully now it will continue in cricket as well.
We are excited to join hands 🤝 with #adidasIndia as the official kit sponsor of the Indian Cricket Team!
