LARNE Football Club are excited to announce the agreement of a five-year kit deal with Clubsport NI which will see the club continue their close association with sportswear giants Nike.
Since appointing Clubsport NI as our kit partner in 2018, the club has experienced record sales year on year through replica shirts as well as growth in training and leisurewear ranges. This extension to the partnership will create new opportunities for the club to develop bespoke designs for our Nike kits going from the start of next season and over the next five years.
The announcement of this new partnership adds to the growth of key commercial and sponsorship partnerships that the club have established recently, highlighting the growth of the club both on and off the pitch since the current project began.
Speaking on the new multi-year deal, General Manager Niall Curneen said: “Our relationship with Clubsport NI has grown over the last few seasons, and year on year we have achieved real growth in our club shop sales and satisfying the demands of our players. This five-year investment by Clubsport NI to continue as our Official Kit Supplier is a huge indication of their commitment to our project both on and off the pitch. Excitingly for our fans, it will enable us to continue our association with Nike and work on producing some bespoke kit options going forward over the next five seasons. For our club, it adds further strength to ensuring the sustainability of the club over the longer term.”
Director of Clubsport NI, Chris Morgan said: “We are absolutely delighted. We are aware of the project that Larne are on as a club and continue to go on so when it came to negotiating a long-term deal, naturally, we were very keen to be involved. Between Niall and Kenny, the negotiations were relatively straightforward, and we are just looking forward and are excited of what is to come over the next five years for Clubsport NI and Larne Football Club.”
