Sporting Gijon to wear Kappa kits from 2011/12

Spanish outfit Sporting Gijon have agreed a deal with Italian company Kappa to wear their kits from the 2011/12 season for a period of three years.

The new deal brings an end to Sporting Gijon’s kit deal with Basque company Astore, who has been making shirts for the Asturian club since 1997.

Adidas were also in the fray but Gijon eventually opted to sport Kappa.
