Minstermen agree Nike deal
York City have joined the likes of Manchester United and Brazil by signing a shirt deal with Nike.

The sportswear giant will provide the club's new home and away kits next season.

The Minstermen are likely to be the only club in the Third Division to wear kit made by Nike Team Wear, as part of their commitment to grassroots football.

The deal was set up by commercial director Jason McGill and he is hoping fans will snap up the new kits.

"The new Nike kit is absolutely fantastic and we are proud to be associated with this winning brand," McGill told the Evening Press.

"We are confident our new home and away shirts will sell very well next season and will generate important income for the club."

The new shirts have been backed by player-coach Lee Nogan, who called the quality of the kit "exceptional".

"It will give the lads a real boost knowing they are sporting the same quality shirts as top teams like Manchester United and Arsenal."

The new home shirt will be unveiled at the club's open day on 13 July.
