The Russian Football Union (RFS) has extended its deal with Adidas for a further four years.

The German sportswear manufacturer will continue to serve as the official technical partner of all Russian national soccer teams until 2022.

Adidas has been a partner of the RFS since 2008.

The agreement has been signed ahead of Russia’s staging of this summer’s Fifa World Cup national team tournament, which is set to run from 14th June 14 to 15th July.

RFU acting president Alexander Alayev said: “Our cooperation with this company also provides for a stronger marketing potential of the Russian national team.”

Russia will play their first match of the 2018 World Cup against Saudi Arabia on 14th June.
