Warrior Sports, the manufacturer reported to become Liverpool FC’s new kit supplier from summer 2012, have launched their Warrior Football website.
The website claims “the game’s about to change”, with visitors encouraged to sign-up for future news of Warrior’s entrance into the football market.
It was reported last year that the US based manufacturer had signed a deal worth a whopping £25m per season – more than Nike pay Man United (£23.3m).
The deal has yet to have been confirmed by LFC, no doubt due to their current deal with adidas not expiring until June 2012, but speaking in his autobiography Pepe Reina alluded that the deal was done. “The introduction of a new sponsor, Warrior, with a deal that will hopefully give us more money,” said Pepe when discussing the positive signs the club was “on the road to recovery”.
Until the deal with Liverpool, Warrior had only entered the markets of hockey and lacrosse sports in the USA.
