By now you’ve heard that Nike, famous for their collegiate uniform makeovers, will take over the NFL uniform contract. Rumors and possible designs have been floating around the internet so CNBC spoke to Mike Parker, CEO and President of Nike:
On Wednesday, Nike CEO and president Mark Parker addressed the situation in an appearance on CNBC.
According to SportsBusiness Daily, Parker said, “[People] are wondering, ‘Well, what are you going to do? Are you going to get crazy with the uniforms?’ We’re actually going to have some fun, but respect the traditions of these teams at the same time.”
It’s unclear how much “fun” Nike will be allowed to have. Still, keep in mind what league spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT last month: “Logos are controlled by teams and the NFL. That will not change. Teams have to apply to league to make changes to logos and colors.
I wouldn’t expect a radical redesign of the Colts iconic logo and uniform. If anything, it remains one of the best and most timeless designs in the NFL.
