No More Nike - Peak To Make Brazil 2020 Olympics Kits

Chinese sportswear producer Peak will become Brazil's Olympics supplier, it has been revealed. Peak Sports replaces Nike, who has been Brazil's official Olympics supplier since 2012. The new agreement allows Peak to produce the kits the Brazil national football teams will wear at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Some months ago, it was reported that the FBI could pressure Nike to leave the contract it has with Brazil (Brazil Football Federation) and that is valid until the end of the 2018 World Cup.

Peak Sports Signs Deal With Brazilian Olympic Committee

The Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) and Nike signed a deal in 2012, while the COB was without a deal since the end of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The COB itself already admitted that it would not be able to have new uniforms this year. The agreement with Peak, therefore, should come to fruition in 2018, just ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Ten countries have a partnership with the Chinese company that was founded in 1989 currently, but none of them with size close to Brazil, both in number of athletes and in economic power. Ukraine, New Zealand, Slovenia, Egypt and Nigeria are some of the teams sponsored by the Asian company.
