Juventus FC Sponsors 2021-22

6 mins read

Following are the companies and organisations that serve as sponsors and brand partners to Serie A club Juventus and enjoy a strong branding presence across their physical and digital assets.

 

OFFICIAL PARTNERS AND SPONSORS

Adidas

German sportswear giant Adidas replaced its American rival Nike as the official kit supplier of Juventus in 2015.

The original deal, which was set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, was renewed in December 2018 in a new-and-improved agreement which would last until June 2027 and bring in a minimum fixed fee of €51 every year, further subject to sales and on-pitch performance-based bonuses.

Adidas’ renewed technical partnership with Juventus also covers their youth teams.

Jeep

Ohio-based subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Jeep, has served as the principal sponsor of Juventus since 2012, when it replaced French online betting company Betclic.

In October 2019, Juventus announced they had reworked their deal with Jeep, which was then worth a guaranteed €17m per year, to an improved agreement which would bring in between €42m and €45m every year.

The two further extended their partnership in a three-year agreement in January 2021. The renewed deal, having kicked off with the start of the 2021-22 season, is reportedly worth €45m at least with potential results-based addons.

Allianz

Munich-based German financial services company Allianz acquired the naming rights for Juventus’ home ground in June 2017. The stadium is since known as the Allianz Stadium, except during UEFA and FIFA events, when it’s simply known as Juventus Stadium.

In February 2020, Juventus announced they had renewed and expanded their partnership with Allianz in a deal worth €103.1m that would run until 2030.

Under the improved deal, Allianz not only retains naming rights for Juventus Stadium for the next ten years, it also gains front-of-shirt sponsorship rights for the club’s training and warm-up kits. The new deal also covers the club’s women’s team.

Bitget

The Singapore-based cryptocurrency platform was announced as the club’s official cryptocurrency exchange partner and the first-ever sleeve sponsor for their matchday shirts in September 2021 in a deal brokered by IMG.

Cygames

Japanese video game developer Cygames signed a back-of-matchday-shirt sponsorship deal with Juventus back in July 2017 but dropped it ahead of the 2019-20 season after conflicts emerged due to the Bianconeri bringing on board rival Japanese video game company Konami as a sponsor.

However, in July 2020, Cygames agreed to return in its previous capacity and resume the back-of-shirt sponsorship deal with Juventus in an improved €10m-a-year deal that runs until 2022.

KONAMI

Juventus signed an unprecedented sponsorship deal with Japanese video game developer KONAMI in July 2019. The deal gave KONAMI exclusive rights to feature Juventus’ licensing — which includes real-life likeness of players, kits and stadium — in its annually released football game, eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), meaning for the first time in 25 years, EA Sports’ FIFA wouldn’t feature the former Serie A champions.

Instead, the lack of license sees EA substitute Juventus with an unlicensed version of the team called Piemonte Calcio. The players, however, are licensed because of EA’s other circumventing deals.

In July 2021, Konami announced a complete overhaul of their flagship football simulation offering PES, which would now become a cross-platform, free-to-play game called eFootball. Juve’s deal with Konami sees the club and their assets licensed in the game.

Parimatch
