Hummel have penned a new deal to become Ayr United's kit manufacturer.

The Danish company - whose kits have been at the centre of a legal wrangle between Rangers and Sports Direct in recent times - have partnered with the Honest Men in a record deal.

It comes a short time after they also agreed a deal with Ayr's rivals Kilmarnock. United confirmed the news on their official website and social media channels. "Ayr United are delighted to announce that Hummel will be the new kit provider from the start of the 2020/21 season," the statement read.

"We have signed a club record multi-year deal which will include at least one completely Bespoke strip per season made for us by the Hummel design team.

"After many years using Adidas we decided the time was right to change and offer our supporters some great value with a world class brand.

"We explored many options and the quality of the Hummel product and their desire to work with Ayr United made the decision for us.

"We will again be in partnership with Football 1st for the supply of the Hummel kit and leisurewear, and both parties are delighted to continue this long standing relationship."

We told how Celtic recently signed a record-breaking deal with Adidas after their £25million contract with New Balance expired.

Rangers, meanwhile, won the latest round of a legal battle with Mike Ashley's Sports Direct over the terms of an injunction.

A judge confirmed the Light Blues were entitled to be paid outstanding cash owed by kit supplier Hummel and their brand partner Elite.

The Light Blues also advertised on their website and social media channels for a new kit supplier earlier this year.
