It’s been a good summer for sponsorship deals around the Premier League, with clubs up and down the structural ladder setting financial records.

Swansea announced last week that they had reached a club-record deal with GWFX, and Chelsea also agreed to a new deal with adidas for a whopping $450 million.

Now, Fulham have revealed their pretty bland home kit for next season along with a sponsorship announcement.  They will partner with sports bookie website Marathonbet for the next two years as their kit sponsor, ending a three-year affiliation with online retail broker FX Pro.

The sponsorship, Fulham announced, is a club record, although no actual amount has been revealed by the club or reported anywhere.

The kit itself is a bit bland, but stays in tune with most white Fulham home kits.  Last season they diverted a bit and went for white with red pinstripes, but those were apparently just a one-year thing.

Adidas have copied a template they used for a number of clubs for the kit, but that’s for another post (hint, hint).
