The important technical partnership between Nike and the FC Barcelona football club has been in place since 1998, when Nike replaced Barça’s previous partnership with Kappa. The agreement with Nike is supposed to last until 2028. However, both Nike and Barcelona are reportedly inclined to renegotiate the terms of the deal, although somehow in opposite directions. Nike, which currently pays between €105 million and €155 million per season to the club, would like to review the financial terms downwards, arguing that the Covid-19 pandemic has altered the context. For its part, FC Barcelona would like to be more independent with respect to decisions in key profitable areas, especially e-commerce. In the midst of this, Puma is reportedly testing its options to replace Nike, according to reports in the Catalan newspaper Ara, which Mundo Deportivo was able to confirm, the sports newspaper said. Puma has not released any official statement on the matter.
