Joma set to bolster LaLiga portfolio with Eibar kit deal
Eibar, of Spanish soccer’s top-tier LaLiga, is reported to have signed a new kit deal with Joma, the Spanish sportswear firm, to begin from the 2019-20 season.
Joma will replace Puma, the German sportswear brand, whose deal with Eibar expires at the end of this season, the Palco23 website has reported.
Puma, which has been Eibar’s kit supplier since 2017, chose not to exercise an option to extend the deal for a further year.
The financial details of the deal with Joma have not been disclosed but the club's existing agreement with Puma is reportedly worth €200,000 ($226,000) per year.
Eibar will now become the latest LaLiga club to be kitted out by Joma, joining Villarreal, Getafe and Leganes.
Eibar was the only club in LaLiga sponsored by Puma but the brand will continue to have a presence in the league next year after agreeing deals with Valencia and Girona.
The agreement with Girona is part of a wider kit deal recently signed with City Football Group, the club's owners, which was highlighted by a 10-year agreement with English Premier League champions Manchester City worth £650 million ($850 million).
Puma was also recently confirmed as the ball supplier of LaLiga, replacing US rival Nike in a three-year deal that begins with the 2019-20 season.
