Nike for Umbro

Ten years ago, Nike did realized that the rest of the world apart from America are playing football by feet not by hands. Before that, Adidas was the only key player in this industry. Since then, Nike began to expand and slowly but surely creepin into this scene. Til today, Nike is pretty much taken over Adidas in many part of the world, recently including the United Kingdom.

Couple days ago, Nike just annouced that the would pay the damage of 580m. USD to takeover Umbro. This is a shocking news to all English football fans. If the English team will be able to make it all the way to the UEFA EURO 2008, then this will defintely be the time that all the fans will see Nike’s swoosh on all the English men.
