Ayr United have inked a new kit deal with Hummel that will see the latter make uniforms for the Scottish Championship club beginning the 2020/21 season. The new deal was officially announced today (March 24, 2020) and brings an end to the club’s six year partnership with Adidas. Danish firm Hummel will now supply shirts for the next four seasons (2020/21, 2021/22, 2022/23 and 2023/24). The club also chose this occasion to unveil their new home shirt- the first as part of this new deal. It will be paired with black shorts and white socks.
Hummel had announced a deal with Kilmarnock last month and have now brought Ayr, who have previously been known for using models in body paint to reveal their kits, on board.
The value of the deal was not revealed, but the club have said it’s a record contract. Continue reading
Celtic have today (March 13, 2020) officially announced a new kit deal with Adidas that will see the German company supply strips to the Scottish giants beginning July 1, 2020. The deal is for a period of five years, meaning it includes the 2020/21, 21/22, 22/23, 23/24 and 24/25 seasons, and is reportedly the biggest ever in the history of Scottish sport.
The news also means the end of Celtic’s association with New Balance. The Boston based firm replaced Nike as the Hoops’ uniform partners in 2015, and this is a big blow for them, having also lost Liverpool to Nike earlier this season.
The first of Celtic’s new season kits were traditionally released in late April/early May during the NB tenure, but with the Adidas deal only beginning on July 1, we could expect a later release date. Continue reading
Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock FC have inked a two year deal with Hummel that will see the Danish firm take over from Nike as the club’s official kit partners beginning the 2020/21 season. The contract is for a period of 3 years, meaning that the club will wear Hummel for the 20/21, 21/22 and 22/23 seasons.
The deal also means that Killie, who are currently 7th in the league table at the time of writing, will have new kit manufacturers as well as sponsors next season. QTS currently appear on the front of the jersey, but they will be replaced by Brownings the Bakers in 2020/2021, with the latter also inking a three year deal with the Ayrshire outfit.
Killie director Phyllis McLeish said that the kits would be bespoke, which potentially implies that the club would not have to wear templated strips (as is oft the case with Nike clubs) from next season.

AFC also announced that shirt sponsors Saltire Energy had signed a multi-year extension that would make them the longest running sponsors in the Dons’ history.
The new Aberdeen top, as you’d expect, is primarily red. The design on the front however doesn’t extend to the back in any form- it’s plain on the reverse, as can be seen in the pics below. Red shorts and socks complete the look of the new kit. Continue reading
