Starting from next season Inter will have their first ever shirt sleeve sponsor in IC Markets according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport.
IC Markets is an Australian based online retail forex and contract for difference broker and they could pay Inter in the region of €10 million a year.
Shirt sleeve sponsorship has become commonplace in English football and in other leagues and Inter are now getting on board themselves and many other Italian clubs are likely to follow them.
The report from the Turin based news outlet goes on to explain that whilst Inter have sorted out their shirt sleeve sponsorship, it remains to be seen who will be their new main shirt sponsor.
Their current deal with Pirelli, which started way back in 1995, is set to expire at the end of next season and it will not be renewed and the search for a new main shirt sponsor is ongoing. Reports elsewhere in the media have suggested that Samsung or Evergrande could become the main shirt sponsor.
