International Brand Licensing (IBL) has signed a license deal with Tenzero for the UK and Ireland categories of Team Sports Clothing and Equipment.

The six-year agreement with Tenzero, a new division of Sondico UK, has minimum guaranteed royalties of GBP189,000 (US$357,453m) during the term of the contract.

IBL Chief executive Tony Hutchinson said: "The Tenzero principals have a wealth of experience in the performance categories and first-class relationships in the sports retail sector of both the UK and Ireland."

"Launching in spring 2007 we look forward to seeing Admiral football and cricket kits once again gracing the parks and playing fields around the country."

The latest deal will combine with agreements with ASDA and Rajan Group, also signed this week, to realign Admiral as a multi category/sector brand.

"Discussions with other potential partners for additional categories should result in the further strengthening of Admiral in the future," added Hutchinson.

Admiral is the exclusive kit supplier to the England and Wales Cricket Boards as well as to Leeds United Football Club.
