Battle Of The Brands

Another World Cup comes to an end this Sunday, and fans will have to wait another four years to see another one. Arguably it’s been one of the most exciting and unpredictable to watch, and as always, it’s been filled with all sorts of sponsors and product placements.

While there may have been fierce competition on the pitch, it is perhaps the rivalry between Nike & Adidas that takes center stage in terms of intensity. Nike reportedly has sponsored 10 teams in this world cup, while its rival Adidas has sponsored 12. This is a significant increase for both brands in comparison with previous world cups.

Considering that the previous world cup drew viewership figures of around 3.2 billion, with 1 billion views for the world cup final alone, it’s no wonder that Nike, Adidas, and hundreds of other brands are all continuously fighting it out for maximum exposure.

This raises another interesting question, which brand is actually performing better, given that they both have access to such high amounts of spectators? Let’s take a look at Adidas & Nike CFDs in a side-by-side comparison.
