Nike Reveals World Cup Strips
The 2010 Football World Cup is a major event not just for the teams involved, but for major sponsors like Nike.
The count-down to the World Cup in South Africa is well and truly on, with fans in all the qualifying countries keeping an anxious eye on player injuries and performance ahead of one of the most-watched competitions in the world. Whether they are travelling to South Africa to watch live, or are just congregating in the nearest bar to home, fans want to be wearing replica shirts, and an unveiling of competition strips like that of Nike’s will have been viewed with interest.Nike Teams at the World Cup
Nike is sponsoring nine teams at this year’s World Cup – although you can make than ten, because with its recent acquisition of Umbro, Nike is also sponsoring the England team by proxy. Nike’s teams include some of the biggest names in the business, such as Brazil, Portugal and the Netherlands, but the brand will also be visible on kits from the USA, New Zealand and Korea. When the Nike World Cup strips were revealed, a player from each team was brought out in front of the press, wearing the strip that he will be hoping will be victorious. Nike’s commitment to sustainability means that each strip has an element of recycling in it, with eight plastic bottles being recycled for each individual strip, combining a green theme with the high performance attributes that Nike is already famous for.Nike Across the Globe
There’s no doubt that Nike and its closest competitor, Adidas, will be getting huge exposure at the World Cup. Nike has ten team strips to its name, whilst Adidas is also sponsoring teams and will provide all the match balls. As the top two names in sport, neither one can be seen to be slacking when it comes to promoting their teams and giving them a competitive edge wherever possible. Nike’s name is already recognised across the globe, and the estimated 30 billion people that will watch some or all of the World Cup tournament won’t be able to escape the brand’s reach.Nike at FootAsylum
