SANTIAGO: Nike has won the right to supply kit and equipment to the Chilean national soccer team.

The American sportswear giant replaces Puma as the kit partner of the ANFP, Chile’s football association.

According to South American press reports, the brand has committed to paying $7m-a-year to supply the team for the eight years until the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup – a fee far exceeding the $2.3m annual sum Puma was reported to be paying.

Puma has supplied the ANFP since 2010 and its current deal will expire on 31st July. Nike, which reportedly outbid Penalty, Adidas and Puma to land the contract, will begin its tenure on 1st August after this year’s Copa America, which Chile is set to host in June.

Chile, currently ranked 16th in Fifa’s world rankings, becomes Nike’s second national team partner in South America, after Brazil.

As well as supplying kit to the team, Nike will also provide the ball of Chile’s top domestic league, the Primera División, and the kits worn by referees in the country.
