AS Roma Annnounce Nike Kit Deal

AS Roma and Nike announced a new partnership for Nike to become the club's official apparel and equipment sponsor. The 10-year agreement will begin at the start of the 2014-15 season. Nike will produce all on-pitch and training product, from the first team to the youth teams, as well as off-pitch product for the players and fans.

 AS Roma will wear an unbranded kit next season after dropping current supplier Kappa in a legal dispute over alleged quality and distribution issues.

Nike Puma and Adidas are running football now...

Not that it's a problem, I just don't paticually rate them as highly as everyone else does. Then again Kappa were awful! I liked Roma's Diadora kits, and with Diadora coming back into football I'd have liked to have seen them donning that again!

Hope their kits are nice, always liked Roma's kits.

What does unbranded mean, someone will have to make it. Will it still be available for purchase I wonder. I would've preferred Macron, Warrior or even Under armour is very much AS R STYLE. But Nike is not a bad choice, they'll get more money at least.

Too bad Kappa was dropped. ASR was one of the few bigger clubs still using the smaller Italian manufacturers like Kappa and Diadora. I really enjoyed Kappa, both the 2010 shirts and when they were the sponsor in 2000 - 2003.

Nike represents the main american idea...MONOPOLY!!
Nike has made a great table cloth for MAN UTD and i expect a great towel to AS Roma :P
I believe in the next few years we will see all the teams (except for Germany and FC Bayern for national reasons only) will be wearing Nike...same kit ...different colour (just see France Kit and u will c England next kit)
But i have to admit...Nike is better than the other manfacturer...in socks!!! best socks i have ever bought were Nike... :P

:sad: Nike are marketing poachers in the world of football. They never sponsor tournaments on any level, Youth or Pro. All they do is show up at WC's with a tent or truck after Adidas puts the shows together. They are only interested in selling over priced shoes and shirts to loyal fans. I guess I will be waring my old Roma shirts for a long time.

Amazing to see a jersey without branding on it.

I wonder when Nike or any other kit supplier would ever have the balls to do something like that where the logo is either hidden or placed somewhere like the shoulder or back only.
