After Nike lost Manchester United and Juventus, the Swoosh makes the shirts for teams like Barcelona, Galatasaray, Inter, Manchester City and AS Roma. In total, Nike produces the kits for eight teams participating in the 2015-16 Champions League.

Puma makes the shirts for just three teams, while Kappa (Mönchengladbach, Wolfsburg), New Balance (Porto, Sevilla) and Umbro (PSV Eindhoven ) will try to create a lasting impression.

Joma (BATE) and Jartazi (KAA Gent) will not play a major role in the 2015-2016 UEFA Champions League, while brands such as Macron failed to sign any 15-16 Champions League Group Stage club. Thanks to Mantos de Futebol for the second graphic.
