Aston Villa and Kappa have partnered up to provide the club’s kits for next season, according to Villa’s official website.
They report that a three-year agreement has been signed between the two parties and the Italian company will make all matchday kit and training attire for the first, development, ladies’ and junior teams.
Chief Commercial Officer Nicola Ibbetson said: “Aston Villa have partnered with such a recognisable and iconic brand who have a long-standing reputation for delivering quality, eye-catching performance sportswear.
“At the forefront of our decision was the key requirement to find a partner that would put design at the heart of the process and do justice to our famous claret and blue colours.
“We are working with Kappa and Fanatics to ensure that all supporters are catered for with a wide range of replica kit and merchandise.”
Villa supporters will be hoping that their side will be wearing the kit in the Premier League next season and there has been plenty of excitement among the fans on Twitter about the new agreement.

Excited by this. Kappa has made a few poor shirts lately, but if they go retro, it could well be a quality shirt IMO. One question though. Is it actually Kappa or Fanatics who is designing the shirt? Everyone said Luke made this years shirt, but heard Fanatics designed it. #avfc
