Another TICK In The Box For Villa

Another TICK In The Box For Villa

Well, here goes another 'tick' in the box for Aston Villa as they've today announced that Nike will be the clubs official sportswear partner from 2007/8 in what the club are calling a long term deal.




HURRAH! Quality brands from a prestige company. NO more rubbish like Hummel. Villa are back, instead of looking at tenth rate, they are looking at the best.

Still love my Adidas though! ;-))

Aston Villa Chief Executive, Richard FitzGerald said: 'This is a significant step forward for the club off the field and we're delighted to have Nike partnering with us. Nike brings with it vast experience in technological innovation in terms of kit and the association will help us to drive the club forward. The brand sits perfectly with the new board's vision for Aston Villa and we're looking forward to working with Nike in the future.'

Jim Allaker, Vice President and General Manager of Nike UK, added: 'Aston Villa is a major club with a fantastic history and a massive fanbase. We're delighted they will be joining the Nike family, which already includes national teams such as Brazil and The Netherlands and clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Celtic and FC Barcelona. We're very excited to be part of the club's future and we anticipate a long and successful partnership.'

Well done Villa, another great step forward.

Great news! Finally we have a quality kit manufacturer. Will be interesting to see who the new sponsor will be too. Great to see an end to the short sightedness and small-time thinking of the previous regime

Class. What a great signing. Any team with a Nike kit looks infinitely more professional straight away. I wouldn't say Hummel was tat though - like the fact no-one else has it and also it alludes to our Scandinavian connection.

It can not be under estimated at what a master stroke this is. This puts us firmly 'up there'. In the big picture this is a massive statement of intent. In the smaller picture, the thought of a Nike Villa kit, with the round Villa badge on, containing the 'star', will definitely be worth queueing up at midnight for.
