German football ends a deal with Adidas – level 1

26-03-2024 07:00

For many years, the German football team only wears Adidas. Even during World Cups.

But the news comes. It surprises everybody, fans, and Adidas too. Nike will replace Adidas in 2027. An expert explains why. The team has problems with money. Also, it does not play very well now. A change must come.

The German Football Association speaks about money. This shows how money affects sports. Still, there is a chance of going back to Adidas in the future. The deal with Nike will end in 2034.

Difficult words: replace (to take the place of something), affect (to have an impact on something or someone).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
