Nike’s push into soccer started in 1994 and 20 years on the iconic Nike swoosh represents the game as much as any other brand.  And to celebrate the passion, talent, irreverence Nike has unveiled the new Nike F.C. line of shoes and apparel.

nike_fc-1“Sem Risco náo há Vitória (without risk there is no victory)” sums up the spirit of the past 20 years and is the motto Nike F.C.

The new line includes a modern take on the classic Nike N98 jacket.  The jacket was first worn by Ronaldo for the 1998 World Cup in France.  The updated version of the jacket includes a lowered collar and updated hem and has the Nike F.C. crest which includes the ‘Sem Risco náo há Vitória.’  A second jacket, the Nike F.C. Saturday Jacket is part of the initial line-up.
