“Impossible is nothing”- the previous slogan for sportswear giants adidas may be just the boost needed for Ipswich Town. The English Championship club has signed a 4-year deal with adidas.
It won’t be the first time that the Tractor Boys have worn the world famous 3-stripes. 25 years ago the side wore the brand with great success, beating Arsenal to win the FA Cup in 1978 and culminating with UEFA Cup title over AZ Alkmaar in 1981.
“We are delighted to be working again with adidas, one of the biggest names in sport,” Ian Milne, Ipswich joint managing director said.
Jonathan Symonds, the other managing director, added: “Seeing our players wearing the three stripes again will no doubt rekindle memories of some great times in the past at Ipswich Town. Let’s hope there will be some great times ahead as well That is what we are all striving for.”
adidas is equally thrilled: “We are delighted to agree to this partnership with Ipswich Town Football Club. They have a rich heritage with the adidas brand and having been part of iconic moments in the Club’s past history, we are looking forward to more successes in the coming four seasons.”
The deal goes into effect on July 1st and the new kits should be available shortly thereafter.
The three stripes are no strangers to the English football. They are the apparel sponsor for Chelsea, Fulham, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion, Southampton, Sunderland to name a few.
