2008 IIHF Sweaters

With Nike leaving the ice hockey market, there was speculation that Nike would no longer be supplying some or all of the IIHF teams.

Germany was recently a Nike supplied team, but has now switched to RBK.

Swedens yellow shirt has darker nuances of the yellow and blue, while the blue has lighter nuances, it seems. Not sure if I like the white trims, though it's nothing wrong with a little change from the usual look now and then I guess.

I can guarantee you Nike won't be making them. Nike has sold Bauer Hockey and while they are allowed to use the Nike Bauer trade mark for 2 years, it is no longer part of Nike.

I don't see a Nike logo on them and they all appear to be slightly different than the ones used at last year's World Championships.

What did bauer ever have to do with making jerseys for the national teams? I know they made ones for Sweden many years back . but at that time Nike and Bauer werent in business together.Nike and Tackla/SP have always made jerseys for the teams since 1995. Those reebok knock offs shown above are obviously fake and horrible quality.

many of those jerseys for the countries are old pictures and arent up to date. They also arent detailed enough to put the Nike logo on them. I guess we will have to wait until the world championships in April?Guaranteed Nike jerseys. If not nike then tackla/SP ! wont be reebok

Nothing really. It's just that in sevewral articles about Nike selling Bauer, they said that hockey was not the best direction for the company and they said they would be getting away from it. I may have gone too far to guarantee it, but Nike said it themselves that they would be moving away from hockey.

away from hockey equipment. i think they will still produce the jerseys and socks however because they are more just materials(like shirts and pants) rather than putting R&D into a new hockey stick or new pair of skates

What does that have to do with jerseys?

Hockey equipment and uniforms are two completely different industries... Nike is still in the uniform making business.

Yes, but the IIHF might not want to renew with Nike if they are pulling out of the equipment business.

based on how long the contract was that might be true. Nike will probably pull out after the 2010 olympics

Does anyone know how long the Nike contract with the IIHF was for? Did Nike buy the rights to certain teams through the IIHF, or did they negotiate individually with each Federation?

i dont believe nike negotiated with each federation. i think it is based on level .. i know all top tier countries in the world championships are made by nike.. any level below it varies and usually only countries that were in the top tier at one point.. Im curious about the contract as well!

Nike will be making the new IIHF jerseys to be released for the 2008 World Championship in May, so it's safe to say they will be around for atleast another two years. Whether or not they will continue to provided the IIHF with jerseys after that is unknown. Nothing about the selling of Bauer would prevent them from staying in the hockey jersey business. They have lucrative deals with some of the bigger hockey nations and their merchandising divisions and it would be well worth their while to stay in the game.

As for the RBK jerseys in this thread, they are legit. There is nothing preventing national hockey federations from having someone else make their jerseys outside of the world championship and the Olympics (except for Canada and the States that have exclusive Nike agreements). Many teams get other companies (such as Lutch or RBK) to make their jerseys for smaller tournaments, where using the more expensive swift uniforms would be too costly. All of the jerseys seen on the iihf site are the dye sublimated versions used for tournaments below the elite level of play and are in most cases the same design as the swift version (other than the collar), but made by Tackla, not Nike.

In other IIHF jersey news, most of the teams at this year's WC will also be wearing retro jerseys for one game during the tournament.

I'm sure some will be for sure, you just have to find someone who finds the passion to sell it.
