Birmingham City have agreed a four-year partnership with American sportswear brand Nike according to reports on the Blues’ official website.
Nike are working with Birmingham City for the very first time and the partnership will officially begin when the men’s Sky Bet Championship campaign comes to an end during the second half of next month.
Charles Baxter’s Birmingham City side will therefore wear brand new Nike home and away kits in next season’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League while they will also have a brand new training range. Nike will replace the Blues’ current sportswear partners Adidas who have been supplying the club with their playing and training kits since 2016.
Birmingham City will undoubtedly have a number of new players wearing their new Nike kits next season. The club lost a whole host of quality players last summer and that theme has continued again 12 months on. There is no doubting the fact that interim boss Baxter will need to sign a number of players in the coming weeks to ensure that the squad is capable of competing strongly in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League in 2020/2021.
The 2019/2020 campaign was incredibly tough for Birmingham City. The club finished just one place above the relegation zone courtesy of the season being ended early and the final standings calculated on a points per game basis. Had the campaign have continued, there is a chance that their relegation battle may have been even more nervy.
