Kappa will replace Nike as the kit sponsor of FC Metz, a French football club that competes in the First League. The Italian sportswear brand is back after nine years, as Kappa had previously been the club’s kit sponsor, from 2006/07 to 2010/11. The new contract will enter into effect on July 1, and will run until the end of the 2023 season. Kappa will dress all the club’s teams with training and lifestyle ranges, including the first team, juniors and women’s teams. Kappa and FC Metz will launch the first collections and new FC Metz 2020/21 jerseys in July.
