Nike sticks with Stade Toulousain in Infront-brokered kit deal
Nike, the US sportswear giant, has signed a new five-year deal to continue kitting out Stade Toulousain, the reigning champions of French rugby union's elite Top 14.
In an agreement brokered by international sports marketing agency Infront, Nike will remain as the club's official supplier through to the end of the 2024-25 season.
Infront brought the two parties back together in 2017, after they ended a 23-year partnership in 2013.
Jean-François Jeanne, managing director at Infront France, said: "Nike and Stade Toulousain are two of the biggest names in rugby and sport as a whole and belong together. Both are known for their excellence and innovation. We are proud of being part of this joint adventure, continuously using our expertise to add to the success of both brands."
Infront is exclusive marketing partner of Stade Toulousain until the end of the 2026-27 campaign.
In February, the agency renewed business service provider Fiducial's back of shirt sponsorship of the team for three more years.
Other main Stade de Toulousain sponsors include: Peugeot (main shirt sponsor); DMAX (shorts sponsor); and Airbus (logo on right breast of shirt).
Stade Toulousain won the 2018-19 Top 14 and this season has been cancelled without the title being awarded because of the coronavirus pandemic.
