Southampton have announced a new kit deal with Hummel that will see the Danish firm become the club’s new shirt suppliers beginning the 2021/22 season. The two parties have inked a five year contract and this also brings an end to Saints’ existing arrangement with US based Under Armour, who have been outfitting the club since 2016. Southampton’s deal with UA was for an original period of seven years (so ending two years in advance) and was reportedly worth around 4m pounds a year.
This is however not the first time that Hummel will be making kits for Southampton, having done so for them in the late 1980’s (1987-1991)
In the current 2020/21 season, Everton are the only Premier League club to be supplied by Hummel- Saints’ deal will make them the second, and will also seemingly bring to an end Under Armour’s association with Premier League football.
