Italian journalist Franco Vanni believes that Inter are looking to double their revenues from their deal with Nike, with production of kits still not where it should be to meet demand.
Reporting in a tweet, Vanni updated on the situation with Nike and the kit manufacturing, whilst he also updated on the situation with Nerazzurri main shirt sponsor DigitalBits, who have until January to make the first payment that they owe to the club or else risk facing legal action.
Inter are still looking for any increases in revenue that they can find, and increased revenues from shirt sales and sponsorship deals could be key to bringing cash into the club, although in both cases they face some hurdles which they are currently trying to rectify.
Vanni updated on the process currently underway within the Nerazzurri to increase the extent to which they can monetize sponsorship deals, tweeting that “As far as the sponsors, Inter are working to double the revenue from Nike, which however is not providing enough official shirts to meet demand.”
“The second kit is not available for purchase from the site and the presentation of the third shirt has yet to happen,” he continues.
“With Konami, the Nerazzurri executives are about to close on a deal with a new sponsor,” he continues. “The end of January is the deadline for resolving the DigitalBits case,” he notes.
“The sponsor is not paying and Inter, who don’t exclude legal action, are looking around to replace them,” he explains.
Per quanto riguarda gli sponsor, l’Inter lavora per raddoppiare le entrate da Nike, che però non starebbe fornendo abbastanza maglie ufficiali per soddisfare la domanda: la seconda divisa non è acquistabile dal sito e la presentazione della terza slitta.
