Al Ain Football Club has announced a partnership with global sport brand Nike, through its UAE distributor Sun and Sand Sports.

The American sports wear giant will become the official kit supplier to the UAE side and provide all training equipment to the first team and all subsidiaries of the club.

"We are proud to have Nike sign on as the official kit partner and training equipment partner for Al Ain Football Club," said a spokesperson for Al Ain Football Club.

"We are moving away from signing on sponsors; we have instead welcomed partners onboard, and Nike is a key partner."

Through Sun and Sand Sports, Nike will assist the club with its 2014 merchandising strategy including the design of the flagship store at the new Hazza bin Zayed Stadium.

The partnership will begin at the opening of the stadium, where the new Nike kit will be available to fans.
