The Polish Football Association (PZPN) agreed a six-year kit deal with Nike to follow up puma as their technical sponsor.
All Poland’s national teams are going to play in Nike kits and additionally the association can count on financial support from Nike.
“The analysis of the offers was carried out by a special commission which also conducted talks with contractors. It turned out that in many aspects Nike’s offer was better, but the choice of technical sponsor was carried out in a vote. The decision was not unanimous,” revealed vice-president of PZPN Rudolf Bugdol.
The contract still needs to be signed. “We are preparing a letter of intent based on the talks with Nike so far, and the contract will be signed after all details are set,” Bugdol added.
The only opponent of Nike in competition for the new contract with the Polish Football Association was Puma, who supplied the Polish footballers with equipment for eight years. Poland’s contract with Puma expires at the end of 2008.
