Rosicky’s Nike and Puma Football Boot Dispute

Arsenal and Czech Republic international midfielder Tomas Rosicky is currently involved in a dispute between football boot brands Nike and Puma.

At the end of last season, Nike allegedly sent written notice to both the gunners star and his agent in order to re-sign him for a further two years as part of the option clause that was written into his Nike contract.



Rosicky has since struck a deal with Puma and was seen wearing Puma’s v-Konstrukt II football boots in the pre-season Amsterdam Tournament. Questions have arisen as to whether the attacking midfielder is still bound by his Nike endorsement contract. Rosicky has fought back stating that he didn’t receive Nike’s notice until after the period for giving it had expired, and he was therefore free to enter into a football boot contract with Puma.

Nike have since sued him for breach of contract and applied for an interim injunction stopping him wearing Puma football boots in the meantime. In fact in Arsenal’s opening games this season, Rosicky has been seen wearing blacked out football boots.
