don't believe in Wiki until there is a press release for the team anyone can edit it. I was also caught in the "kuryente" post when it was reported that De Jong was in Sriwijaya's line up and in their wikipedia page he's there.
A little background information on Adidas and Puma:
Did you know?
Did you know that creators of Adidas and Puma were brothers? Adidas was founded in 1948 by Adolf “Adi” Dassler, following the split of Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik between him and his older brother Rudolf. Rudolf later established Puma, which was the early rival of Adidas.
Both brothers joined the Nazi Party, but Rudolf was slightly closer to the party. During the war, a growing rift between the pair reached a breaking point after an Allied bomb attack in 1943 when Adi and his wife climbed into a bomb shelter that Rudolf and his family were already in.
“The dirty bastards are back again,” Adi said, referring to the Allied war planes, but Rudolf was convinced his brother meant him and his family.
After Rudolf was later picked up by American soldiers and accused of being a member of the Waffen SS, he was convinced that his brother had turned him in.
Based on the wiki page of our national team. There are rumors that it will be Puma. I rather have Addidas as the official outfitter.
what is wrong with puma? adidas and nike are more into basketball than football in our country... maybe they did not offer to sponsor the kits of our azkals.. ;D ;D ;D
We are still in the early stages in promoting football in the country. It is prudent to have a sponsor that has a wide market share and more accessible To the public. With a good marketing arm, both establishments provide what the consumer wants which gives the notion that they are only into basketball. ;D
The same can be made if ever they decide to sponsor our NT.
While I think locally Adidas may be a better outfitter given Nike has been very basketball-centric in the country as well as certain bad reviews from their service.
But if somehow Nike regional can take on a hands on approach Iw ould defintiely go for them. They're experienced within the region given nearly all(the big guns at least) of SEA national teams are outfitted by them.
And as I have seen during my trips abroad, they do well in selling jerseys from fellow ASEAN countries and is readily available in all their Nike branches so this could do well for the brand.
Back in the old forum someone suggested Botak as a kit sponsor. It was an applauded suggestion back then but I think the team has outgrown the brand by now. And the ability to provide cold weather gear is a must. I'd actually be okay with Mizuno as long as they can Sort out their problems and provide the kits and appropriate gear for the team and fans. I really didn't like that they made "cheaper material" kits (with different color accents!) for fans without making the team's kit available as well for purchase. My vote is Adidas. I just like their kits more than Puma or even Nike.
^ botak - a brand i haven't heard of in ages are they still around? i reckon they must be raking in the big bucks w/ the running mania we're having right now - that is if they're still around. isn't their main office in the kamuning, quezon city area? i once bought a pair of short short running shorts way back when hehe
i'm basically ok with mizuno only if they can improve the distribution of their kits. i actually bought an azkal kit way back early in 2008 (the one w/ the red and white combo), and i still get positive complements whenever i wear it. i remember back then there were no supply problems because the boys were still practically unheard of. how times have changed
^ ah so botak is indeed still around. i say good for them. but i'm a bit surprised w/ their affinity to basketball nowadays given their excellent running heritage
according to the notoriously wishy-washy wikipedia entry the team has, there's already a new design for the azkals kit and the make will be puma.
i was thinking diadora could also make a go for it (especially since their banners were ubiquitously on display in the dubai arena in the uae azkals tour) since they do have a fledgling presence here (i saw their stuff on the racks at the robinson's dept store at the festival mall) and signing up the azkals would be such a coup for them. kaya naman nila siguro ma-meet ang unis demand ng fans kung sakali hehe

BoyBacolod: As long as Ricky Yanson is professional to Ceres FC and extends support to the Azkals in general (Ceres Azkals in particular) during home games, he can be PFF president in my book. Much better will be reconciling with Leo, though that idea is Farfetch'd.

BoyBacolod: Kaya fans wishing that Ricky Yanson wins the PFF presidency is akin to GMA fans wishing that Congress and President Duterte will not renew ABS-CBN's franchise.

BoyBacolod: We will wait for the basketball and volleyball ASEAN teams and then we compare their reception to that given to the football delegations, where ALL ASEAN nations participate. Now there will be foreign scrutiny in every move of PHISGOC.

BoyBacolod: DDS trolls underestimated the SEA football community. Having no prior exposure to football culture, they dismiss any and all so-called sabotages as destabilization plots, to the point that they do not support the teams, especially the women.
