Inter will announce their new main shirt sponsor when Steven Zhang returns to Milan later this month. Pirelli’s 26-year deal with the Nerazzurri expires at the end of the season. However, they will still be in association with the club. The partnership between Inter and Pirelli goes long back to 27 years. Also, Pirelli have been Inter’s shirt sponsors since the 1955-56 season. This news has made the Nerazzurri fans emotional. The Pirelli are witness to Inter’s dominance in Italian football. Moreover, the shirt sponsors had a deal of €10 million per season plus the bonuses and add ons. So there is constant speculation over who could replace the Italian tire manufacturer. Inter have a €20 million offer from adult webcam site, Stripchat.
Fc Inter News said Suning had met numerous high-profile groups in recent weeks. This was to either secure a new commercial partner or to renew the pre-existing deals. Hisense, EA Sports, Honor, Oppo, One Plus, Huawei, Xiaomi and Samsung are among the businesses they spoke to. Any one of these could potentially end up being Inter’s shirt sponsor.
New shirt sponsor of Inter will be more lucrative
Inter remain a key strategic investment for Suning, the report assured. Despite fears last month that the Nerazzurri could follow in the footsteps of Jiangsu FC, who went out of business. Suning need Inter in order to expand their business in the western world. Therefore they are seeking new sponsorship deals for the club at the moment.
Pirelli’s deal was often criticized for not being lucrative enough. Now it seems likely that Inter’s new sponsor would guarantee them a lot more money. Whoever replaced Pirelli though, FCIN said it was clear that Suning remained a huge economic force in China. This means that they have no intention of throwing in the towel at Inter anytime soon.
