Nike Bans Boots for Iran National Football Team

Following the return of the US sanctions on Iran, sports producer Nike has announced that the company will not support Iran national team players with boots.
According to the report by New York Times on Friday, none of the country’s players will wear Nike shoes while Adidas provides the jerseys of the team. Iran is facing new US sanctions after Donald Trump pulled out of an international nuclear deal.
As the company expected, 60% of the players at the World Cup will use Nike boots including almost half the German and Spanish team and three-quarters of the Russians, even though they will be wearing Adidas shirts.
Nike is outrun by Adidas for the share of jersey deals in the World Cup while it has deals with ten national teams and Adidas supporting twelve.

this is so ridiculous! Absolutely against the spirit of sports and sportsmanship! Nike is always so proud of their anti-racism movements and this is opposite is everything they say they are. Mixing sports and politics is absolutely wrong and should not happen in such a big international event! sad day for nike!
