Press TV – TEHRAN, The Football Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) is mulling over granting a sponsorship deal for the national soccer teamÂ to the SpanishÂ sports clothingÂ manufacturer Joma, an official says.
The potential deal would reportedly see Joma supply match kit and possibly training equipment to Iran menâ€™s national football team between March 2016 and mid-July 2018, when theÂ 2018 FIFA World CupÂ scheduled to take place in RussiaÂ concludes.
Joma would replace German sports goods manufacturerÂ uhlsport GmbHÂ as the FFIRIâ€™s official technical sponsor if a deal is struck.
The secretaryÂ of the FFIRI’s marketing committee,Â Abbas Torabian, said on Monday that “negotiations between theÂ federation and the manufacturerÂ have concluded, but the final contract has not been signed yet. We are making the final studies,” the sports website, varzesh3, reported.
Torabian further stressed that there would be no financial agreement between his federation and Joma, and that the FFIRI would not receive any money in sponsorship.
Joma, which producesÂ footwearÂ andÂ clothingÂ forÂ football,Â futsal,Â basketball,Â volleyball, running,Â tennis,Â padel and fitness, is currently providing Iranâ€™s Isfahan-based Foolad Mobarakeh Sepahan football club with match kit and related equipment.
