The agreement will see the Iconix Brand Group-subsidiary supply the Toffees with all playing and training equipment for their men's, women's and academy sides.

It will be the fifth consecutive decade in which the two parties have worked together, with Umbro having supplied the Merseyside club's kits on and off since 1974.

Umbro will officially replace its former owner Nike as the club's technical partner on 1st June, and the new kits are expected to go on sale in July. Nike has supplied Everton's kits for the past two seasons.
