Nike renews with VfL Bochum

Second-tier German soccer side VfL Bochum have renewed their apparel agreement with Nike for a further four years. 

The US sportswear giant will continue to supply Bochum’s men’s, women’s and age representative teams with match-day jerseys. Nike’s trademark swoosh will be visible through pitchside LED boards at the team’s home ground, the Vonovia Ruhrstadion, and on the post-match step and repeat boards. 

Nike has been the kit supplier of the North Rhine-Westphalia outfit since 2011 when it replaced Do You Football.  

VfL Bochum finished ninth in the 2016/17 2. Bundesliga. The poor league position led to Dutch coach Gertjan Verbeek being sacked in the close season and being replaced with Turkish boss Ismail Atalan
