Nike Manufacturer of the Brazil Kit
American sportswear producer Nike has been the manufacturer of the Brazil football kit since 1997. There has been much debate as to the relationship between Nike and the Brazilian football federation, including FBI investigations into potentially fraudulent activity surrounding the deal. Whatever the history of the deal, the Nike-Brazil relationship has been one of spectacular kits, highs and lows, and big money sponsorship, with the current deal being worth a reported $32million per year.
Like all football teams Nike design and produce new Brazil kits on a regular basis. A full complement of new shirts, shorts and socks are released ahead of every major tournament including the FIFA World Cup and Copa America. The most popular with fans is the Brazil home kit featuring the iconic yellow, blue and green colour scheme, but there are also away strips, training gear and accessories to suit all tastes and budgets.
