One of the biggest clubs in England is getting rid of adidas and slipping into something a bit more American.

Liverpool announced on Thursday morning that it has reached a record jersey deal with Michigan-based company Warrior Sports. The deal is worth $38.6 million annually over the course of six years, making it the largest jersey deal in England and second-biggest in the world behind Barcelona's deal with Nike (worth an estimated $40.6 million).

A company primarily associated with ice hockey and lacrosse, Warrior Sports will replace adidas as Liverpool's jersey manufacturer beginning June 1, 2012. Warrior Sports will produce Liverpool's home, away and alternate jerseys, as well as the club's training gear.

Liverpool's deal with the American firm might be worth the most in England, but it is not the first of its kind. In 2011, Tottenham agreed to a five-year jersey deal with Baltimore-based Under Armour.

What do you think of Liverpool's record deal? Expecting to see more Premiership teams signing deals like this with American companies in the future?
