Arsenal will have a new kit supplier for next season.

Their long-standing partnership with Puma is to end, with the north London club announcing on Monday that they will switch to adidas “effective from July 1, 2019.”

The Gunners last wore adidas in 1994 and it is believed they will wear plenty of their classic kits in the upcoming years.

Given the nine game winning run in all competitions under new manager Unai Emery, which includes six consecutive victories in the Premier League, there is a real feel-good factor around Arsenal right now.

It has been reported that the deal with adidas will see the Gunners receive $390 million over five years, which would be a huge increase on their current deal with Puma.

Add in their shirt sponsorship deals with Fly Emirates ($258 million over five years) and Visit Rwanda ($39 million over three years) and Arsenal could bring in over $130 million per season just on deals related to their jersey.

With Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis leaving the Gunners for AC Milan in the coming months, Arsenal have been left in great financial health with this adidas deal another sign of that.
