Adidas and Nike Dominate 2018 World Cup Kit Battle

With the majority of World Cup teams confirmed since last night, we thought this was a great moment to give you a first update about the current situation in terms of brands.

Nike had an awful night as both Chile and the United States, two of its most prominent teams, failed to book places for the Russia World Cup, while Adidas was obviously relieved to see Lionel Messi and Argentina pull through against Ecuador.

In total, the two big brands heavily dominate proceedings, with more than two thirds of qualified teams supplied by one of them. Adidas leads with ten teams ahead of Nike with eight.

New Balance has two teams (Costa Rica and Panama) and leads the rest of pack ahead of Erreà, Puma and Umbro, who all have one team each (so far).

Are you still shocked to see Panama clinch a place for Russia ahead of the USA? Did Chile deserve to reach the tournament? Drop us a line below, and check out the Kit Overview for the latest leaks and releases.

(*) An earlier version of this article incorrectly assumed that the Iran most recently wore Jako. The team appears to be with Adidas at the moment.
