Celtic will become the first team in Scotland to be sponsored by the US company, who are famous for their sneakers but have only recently broken into the football market.

The Parkhead side recently signed a five-year deal with New Balance worth around £30 million deal. Liverpool, Porto, Sevilla and the Costa Rican national team will also wear New Balance kits from next season.
