Sao Paulo are said to be unhappy with their treatment by Adidas, and believe that they deserve greater global distribution of their gear in accordance with their status as one of Brazil's biggest clubs. There have been problems since the start of the partnership in 2018, as the club apparently haven't received authentic kits, only replicas for match use.
