BBL and Kappa agree new three-year deal

The BBL and WBBL have announced a new three-year deal with Kappa to remain their official and exclusive apparel sponsor.

The leading international sportswear company signed an initial contract in 2016, but has acted quickly to re-negotiate a new deal until the end of the 2020-21 season.

The deal includes a significant investment from Kappa - as well as the provision of a wide range of sportswear, including track suits, playing uniforms, training uniforms and leisure wear for all clubs and teams.

"The partnership has been extremely successful in positioning Kappa at the forefront of British Basketball due in the most part to the increasing exposure the game is getting in the UK,” said Dave Bandell the Team Sport Manager of Kappa.

"We thank the clubs and the BBL for all their help in this and hope the next three years can be as successful as the previous two."

BBL and WBBL Commercial Director, Bob Hope added: “The re-negotiation by Kappa of its exclusive apparel partnership deal, taking it to 2021, is hugely positive news for both leagues.

“It clearly demonstrates the growing interest in British Basketball.

“We all feel that the BBL and WBBL is going places and Kappa has been astute enough to recognise this."
