Umbro has been looking to swoop up as many big name British clubs as possible, and Sunderland has been no exception. Sunderland has been netted in a five-year deal with the kit manufacturer. It was announced that the Black Cats will be amongst the newest clubs to have Umbro as their official provider of playing and training kit.

Despite a current contract with Lonsdale that has a two-and-a-half years run left, Umbro will be supplying for Sunderland for the 2007/08, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons. Lonsdale and Sunderland have both agreed to end their agreement early allowing for Umbro’s head-start.

Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn added: "In the next five years we’re all going to be working very hard to deliver this club's potential and Umbro are very welcome partners. 

This adds enormous strength to the direction the football club is taking and it's great that Umbro believe in us and what we're striving to achieve." 

The Dublin-based Bohemians have signed a new kit deal with Diadora, the Italian sportswear company.

The six figure deal should certainly give the club a boost over the three-year contract. The move will see the Bohemians return to their traditional red and black stripes for the home kit, although a slightly less traditional design will be used for the away kit. 

 It is a unique partnership that will see Leeds United Ladies playing in a personalised UMBRO kit, which has been specifically tailored for the team. In addition UMBRO will also supply training kit, equipment and boots.

West Ham United have signed a shirt sponsorship deal with XL, a charter airline with links to Iceland, beginning from the start of next season. XL will pay the Barclays Premiership club about £2.5 million a season, more than three times the value of their present deal with Jobserve.

It is thought that the deal has contingencies in the event that the club are relegated at the end of the season. The London club announced in October that Umbro will be their new kit manufacturers from next season.

 Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon said the club will soon sign the biggest shirt sponsorship contract in world soccer.
