Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr Sign Kit Deal With Nike
Written by Teniola Akerele on July 3, 2023
Al-Nassr has unveiled Nike as its new kit manufacturer following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival in January this year.
In a post made by the club’s official Twitter account on Sunday, it stated, “We are delighted to announce Nike, as our official kit supplier for the 2023-24 season.
“This deal will be activated starting from AlNassr Japan Tour at the end of July.”
Football superstar, Ronaldo, 38, has a lifetime deal with Nike and is currently on a 10-year contract with the company worth £147 million.
Ronaldo’s team, Al-Nassr, has switched from Arabic giants Duneus to Nike as their kit manufacturer. This is the team’s third time partnering with Nike, having worked with them previously between 1997-2001 and 2010-2012.
The change in the manufacturer is unlikely to result in a significant visual change, as Duneus took inspiration from Nike’s style for their current kit design.
Al-Hilal, another Saudi pro league team, has also recently switched to a well-known sportswear brand, Puma, on a five-year contract as the league’s international profile grows.
