Let’s face the fact: Football is all about money. And one of the best selling products in football are the kits of the national teams. National pride and the identification with the team of your own country is the reason why every year millions of shirts are sold. For small suppliers it is hard to enter the very competitive market.

I was always wondering how the worldwide distribution of the market is characterized and I thought others would also be interested in such information. Therefore I created a world map of the national football team kit suppliers.

It is clear how adidas is dominating the market in North Africa, whereas in South-East Asia only Nike is present of the 5 big suppliers. Puma also has a clear distribution in Western Africa and Central Europe. (Here is the new map for the kit suppliers of the top Europe leagues)

If you find interesting features of the map feel free to share your opinion in the comments. I hope you enjoy it.

Updating the browser or using another one [Chrome and newest IE works fine] should solve this issue.

  15. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    • Hi there,
      I am aware of that problem and I am going to try to reduce the loading time for future posts. It is basically due to the big size of the map file. I will keep the size lower for the next maps I will post. For this post, however, it is pretty much extra work to do this right now, which is why I leave it like that for now. I hope you could anyway enjoy the map.

  16. Im not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later. Cheers gbdgefbckddd

  17. Thank you. I am glad you like it.
