Nike to Replace Umbro As Official Kit Providers for England Team: The Nightly EPL

The Daily Mail is reporting that a deal is poised to be completed that will see Nike replace Umbro as England’s official kit manufacturer. The shocking news could be a death blow to Umbro, who have lost most of its major Premier League kit manufacturers to its competition and is now set to lose their England deal, which first began in 1952. Nike, who owns Umbro, is trying to sell the British kit manufacturer, but the loss of the England deal will surely decrease the value of the company.
