Melborg FC | Nike
Melborg FC have come to a deal for their kits to be made by Nike for the next four seasons. The deal brings an end to the 20 year partnership with Adidas.
The first set of kits will be for the 2017-18 ESL season. Spokesperson Adam Higgs said that “they were very excited by the new partnership agreement with the US firm, starting a new era for Melborg FC.”. He continued to give praise for Adidas, “we have had a long arrangement with Adidas, many of our fans put value in the three stripes brand, but we can get more from this deal and we are delighted to move forward in this way”.
Initial fan reactions on social media have been very, very mixed. Some fans have been delighted, others feel it is unwanted change or even a betrayal of Adidas!
