Umbro continues its FA partnership

Nike-owned sportswear brand Umbro has extended its long-standing partnership with the Football Association until 2018, reports Sport Business. Funds from the new deal will be reinvested in all 23 Club England teams; St George's Park, home of the National Football Centre in Burton, and 3,000 County FA courses every year.

"We have a fantastic relationship with Umbro that spans almost 60 years," said FA general secretary Alex Horne. "They are part of the fabric of English football and this significant long-term investment into our partnership demonstrates the enduring strength of the England brand."

A new Umbro kit will be worn by the England team this Friday against Bulgaria at Wembley in the national team's first game of its Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.
