As part of the multi-year agreement, the logo of the soccer management game will appear on the left sleeve of the Potters’ first team, U23s, and ladies’ shirts from the beginning of next season.
The partnership with Top Eleven will not affect City’s agreement with principal shirt sponsor Bet365, which will continue to have its logo imprinted on the front of the team’s new shirts.
“We are delighted to become the first Premier League club to attract an entirely new commercial partner as official sleeve partner and we look forward to a long and successful association with Nordeus and their Top Eleven football management game.”
Branko Milutiniović, chief executive of Nordeus, the mobile games developer that launched Top Eleven, added: "We are really proud to partner with Stoke City, one of the oldest football clubs in the world. Top Eleven players build their club from scratch and have the opportunity to manage their team for years.
“We are one of the longest-lasting mobile football games on the market and we believe that Stoke City's long history through the football ages represents a story our millions of players will relate to."
