This is the new AIK home shirt 2020, Swedish football club AIK’s new primary kit for the upcoming Allsvenskan season. Made by Nike, the new AIK 2020 kit was officially unveiled on March 25, 2020.
The jersey, as you’d expect from AIK, is predominantly black with yellow detailing. Real Estate firm NOTAR are principal shirt sponsors with the logos of Stadium (sleeve) and Svea (lower back) also appearing on the jersey. Supporters however have the option of buying a sponsor-less jersey as well.
Winners in 2018, AIK had to settle for a fourth place finish in the 2019 Allsvenskan season, narrowly missing out on European football. Their clash against eventual champions Djurgardens was the highest attended game in the league, with a crowd of 45,367 in attendance. Continue reading
South Africa have officially signed a new kit deal with French manufacturer Le Coq Sportif that will see the latter replace Nike as the country’s official uniform suppliers. The LCQ Bafana deal is for a period of five years beginning June 1, 2020 and brings to an end SAFA’s six year association with Nike that began in 2014.

These are the new Norrkoping away shirts 2020, the new alternate uniforms for Swedish Allsvenskan club IFK Norrkoping for the upcoming league season. Peking, as IFK are known to their fans, will be wearing blue and red alternate jerseys on the road, created by Nike.
One away shirt is blue in colour while the other one is red, with the latter’s design influenced by the elements on the Ostergotland County’s coat of arms. Norrkoping are based in that province, located in south-east Sweden.
Norrkoping, who won the Swedish league back in 2015, finished 5th in the 2019 edition of the Allsvenskan. They had the fewest losses of any side outside the top three, but the inability to convert draws (9 of them) into wins saw them having to settle for fifth. Continue reading
League One outfit Sunderland have announced a new shirt deal with Nike that will see the latter replace Adidas as the club’s official kit partners beginning the 2020/21 season. The official duration of the deal was not revealed, but SAFC announced that it was a “multi-year” one. The deal will be serviced for Nike by Just Sport.
Sunderland last wore Nike back in the 2003-04 season. Since then, they’ve had Diadora, Lonsdale, Umbro and Adidas as kit partners. The Adidas SAFC deal began in 2012 and has lasted eight years.
The Black Cats are currently 5th in League One at the time of writing and will be hoping to return to the Championship after losing the playoff final last year to Charlton.
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.
