As the opening credits rolled for Friday’s PFT Live, I posted a short and sweet tweet regarding the unveiling of the new NFL Nike uniforms.
The considerably-less-than-140-character message drew plenty of attention, so I figured it made sense to mention it here.
On April 3, Nike and the NFL officially will launch their partnership at an event in New York.
Nike’s intentions regarding the NFL uniforms remain unclear. An executive promised “dramatic” changes when the deal was struck in 2010. The NFL more recently has explained that the changes will primarily be reflected in the construction of the jersey.
Most recently, Nike CEO and president Mark Parker said that the company will “have some fun” while “respecting the traditions” of the teams.
We’ll all get something slightly more definitive on April 3.
