London – The Welsh Rugby Union is set to agree a new nine-year contract with kit manufacturer Under Armour worth £33 million (R690m)

According to the BBC website, the American company replaced Reebok as the kit supplier for all Wales international teams in 2008.

Whereas the original Under Armour contract was worth roughly £2.5m a year, the new deal will see the annual fee rise to around £3.7m.

In addition it was announced in September that Wales’ home ground, the Millennium Stadium, will be renamed the Principality Stadium in a 10-year sponsorship deal beginning in January 2016.

Under Armour’s other high-profile clients include Tottenham Hotspur, New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady and golfer Jordan Spieth.

Wales finished second in their pool at this year’s Rugby World Cup before losing to the Springboks in the quarter-finals.
