Nike and the Fédération Française de Football (FFF) have announced the extension of their partnership. The new contract will run from 2018 until the end of the 2026 season. Nike will continue to be the equipment supplier of the French national teams and for the first time, French amateur football will be part of the partnership.
“Nike is very proud to extend our long-term relationship with the French Football Federation and we look forward to building upon our successful partnership for years to come,” said Trevor Edwards, President of the NIKE Brand.
Noël Le Graët, President of the French Football Federation, said, “I am pleased to continue this collaboration with Nike. This new agreement shows the commitment to our national teams, amateur football and the Federation. It also reflects the value of our football and rewards a remarkable collective partnership.”
Les Bleus have worn kits featuring Nike’s famous Swoosh logo since 2010 following the end of their 40 year association with previous technical sponsor adidas. French national team regulars such as Blaise Matuidi (Paris Saint Germain), Anthony Martial (Manchester United) and Raphaël Varane (Real Madrid) all have endorsement deals with the Oregon-based sportswear giant.
