Cha-ching! After the 2013-2014 season, Arsenal will begin an agreement with Puma to become the official kit sponsor for $46 million/year over five years. In contrast, they were receiving roughly $17 million/year with their current Nike agreement.

This ends a 20-year agreement with Nike, a 20-year run that includes a top 5 Premier League finish in every season but one. Manchester United and Manchester City are the only two remaining teams that will be represented by Nike in the Premier League moving forward.
