New Balance has today announced an extension to the current sponsorship agreement with Ligue 1 Club, LOSC LILLE.
The sponsorship extension will see the brand manufacture all technical kit and training wear for the French Club, creating the biggest product range in LOSC history, with four kits per year and pinnacle footwear collaboration launches each season.
LOSC LILLE has a rich 76-year history, nurturing some of Europe’s most exciting footballing talent. The multi-year relationship will also see New Balance work alongside the Club to tell its story through first team and Academy players.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum said: “New Balance is excited to build on what’s already proven to be an incredibly successful relationship with LOSC LILLE.
The club’s wealth of history and commitment to development really mirrors our own heritage in sport and desire to innovate.
We’ve been side by side in some of the most successful seasons in recent times, during which we’ve seen LOSC’s influence across Ligue 1 and Europe grow.
The Club has so much potential, we’re really ambitious about the future and re-defining what it really means to be a kit supplier”
Chairman, Olivier Létang of LOSC LILLE said: “We are very happy to continue this partnership with New Balance.
We are two great football challengers, two “game changers”, and besides our common values and the great relationship that already links us, we share strong ambitions on and off the pitch.
In a period where the health and economic crisis requires us to reinvent ourselves, with New Balance we have the ambition to innovate and bring some freshness.
This partnership is powerful and ambitious and enables LOSC to further develop its product and merchandising offer, with the aim of increasing the Club’s profile in France and around the world”
As part of the deal, LOSC LILLE product will be sold through New Balance retail stores globally.
The sponsorship maintains the application of the brand’s technical expertise in one of Europe’s elite leagues.
