Manchester City’s Jack Grealish has reportedly signed a ‘seven-figure’ Pepsi deal that will see him feature in the company’s upcoming ad campaign. 

The 28-year-old has already shot the Pepsi advertisement with retired footballer Vinnie Jones according to the report outlined by The Sun. 

Grealish’s seven-figure deal with Pepsi adds to the already large sponsorship portfolio the Premier League winner has amassed over recent years, with current deals including Gucci, Puma and Boohooman

Gucci named Grealish as one of its global ambassadors in August last year, an unprecedented deal for a UK footballer.

In 2021, the England international signed a sponsorship deal with Boohooman, which saw Grealish launch a fashion collection. 

Grealish’s most recent sponsorship deal came with Puma in a “record-breaking” boot deal in March last year. The Champions League winner’s deal with the sports apparel brand is believed to be worth more than the deals Gareth Bale and Harry Kane inked with Puma. 

Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing at Puma, outlined what makes Grealish such a valuable marketing and sponsorship asset. 

He said last March: “Jack Grealish is one of the most exciting players in Europe, with his outstanding technical skills and his quick feet he can be the difference between winning and losing. 

“He turns heads on and off the pitch with his quick feet and personal style which makes him an outstanding new addition to the Puma family. 

“We want Jack to be one of the leading faces of the brand in football and culture. Jack’s position opens the opportunities to work across many of our fashion-forward initiatives and work together with him on his many personal causes.”
