Inter Milan new shirt sponsor: Paramount+ confirm Champions League deal

Inter Milan face a major Champions League showdown against Manchester City as Simone Inzaghi plots a shock in Istanbul.

The Serie A side have battled their way through to the final, after beating city rivals AC Milan in the semifinals, and winning the Coppa Italia final last month.

However, the club have also battled against financial issues in the last 12 months, with the club ownership hinting they are open to a sale due to mounting debt.

Former shirt sponsor DigitalBits were removed from the kits in March, after failing to pay outstanding fees and bonuses, with a new agreement reached with US broadcaster Paramount+.

Who are Inter Milan's new sponsor?

Inter's relationship with DigitalBits came to a sharp end in the final weeks of the 2022/23 season as they eventually refused to keep the firm's name on the front of their shirt.

Following weeks of playing without a sponsor in their shirts, Inter reached an agreement with Paramount+, to cover the final two matches of the season.
