Nike hands Chelsea fans good news despite Abramovich’s government sanctions

Reports in England claim that there has been some good news for Chelsea fans as Nike are reportedly set to stand-by their kit deal with the club.

It comes after shirt sponsors Three announced they are suspending their deal with the Blues on Thursday.

But according to The Athletic, kit manufactures Nike have told the west Londoners they will stick by them despite suggestions they were considering the partnership.

The two parties agreed a 15-year, £900million deal back in 2016 as Adidas were replaced.

With nine years remaining, it meant Chelsea would have lost £540m if Nike, who make match kits, training gear and replica kits, walked away.
