Eintracht Brauschweig Announce New Kit Deal
It’s not a new relationship. Back in the 1970s when Eintracht were in the Bundesliga, Erima produced their kits.
While Nike are the current providers, Erima offered bespoke designs, something the Americans wouldn’t match. This season’s kit uses the Nike Teamwear range as its’ template.
This season is the fiftieth anniversary of Braunschweig’s Bundesliga title to date. Returning to the top flight for next season will be the perfect tonic for the new partnership.
No financial details of the kit contract are public knowledge at this point. With the promotion a possibility, Eintracht are surely due a bonus for success?
The top two in 2.Bundesliga win automatic promotion while the third placed team face the third bottom team in 1.Bundesliga in a play-off.
