Financially stricken Brazilian soccer club Santos have reportedly agreed a sponsorship deal with supplements brand Voxx.
The one-year contract includes branding on the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A side’s shorts, according to Maquina do Esporte.
Voxx already has deals in place with five other Brazilian teams: América-MG, Botafogo, Figueirense, Fluminense and Portuguesa.
While financial terms have not been released, the new deal will come as a welcome boost for Santos, who are reported to have debts totalling US$127 million.
Last season, the club was unable to attract a main kit sponsor and therefore switched to a match-by-match shirt sponsorship model in a bid to raise funds.- See more at: http://soccerex.com/news/2015/07/cash-strapped-santos-sign-shorts-sponsor#sthash.5FinfHxn.dpuf
