The addition of the Nike logo to uniforms could be considered MLB, which plunges its toes into the water before the arrival of advertising patches in uniforms. According to the Sports Business Journal, MLB could begin adding uniform advertising patches early in the 2022 season, but is expected to be approved by the Players Association in the next round of collective bargaining. But MLB will survive the storm and will not regret its decision if the financial reward is close to what awaits it. According to the New York Post, the 10-year contract between Nike, MLB and Fanatics is estimated at more than $1 billion. The new MLB jerseys with the Nike logo on the chest look sticky, like something you`d get in a discount, not an authentic jersey worn by players on the field. t.co/UhqdBGw5x4 The Nike logo on the front of all MLB uniforms is UGLY. Maybe you put it on your sleeve. #mlb #nike #giants pic.twitter.com/zDU203Ek4s Nike will continue to be the official sponsor of MLB and support league initiatives, basic marketing and fan events. As part of the new agreement, Nike will work with all 30 MLB clubs and promote its brand and products in all media areas of MLB, including MLB Network, MLB.com and MLB Social. For now, it may look like a harmless 3-inch swoosh that made his beloved Dodgers, Red Sox or Nats jersey. But you wait. This is just a tip to follow towards the ultimate uniform crime – jerseys that have more ads than the exterior walls. Oh, what is it? The Sports Business Journal reports that MLB plans to hit promotional patches on uniforms early in the 2022 season.
It`s not going to look sticky. But before the ads are sewn onto fabric, the players` association should accept such a move in the next round of collective bargaining. And we know that players can`t pay. Nike currently has support contracts with more than 500 major league and minor league players, including stars like Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton and Nolan Arenado.
