LeBron James and Liverpool F.C. are soon dropping in with a collaborated product in Nike stores. Bron has been a part of the Liverpool family since 2011.
At first, King James, the minority stakeholder released ‘Liverpool x LeBron James’ shoes and this time it is a special jersey. As per FOOTY HEADLINES, the first look of the jersey has been leaked online and it is going to be a black jersey. Vertical red lines and a symbol of king’s crown on the jersey.
“We’re doing a product line with LeBron and Liverpool,” Liverpool’s chairman Tom Werner said. “Nike is creating seven or eight products that connect LeBron with soccer. I don’t know specifics yet, but they’re going to create seven or eight products that rival the connection that Michael Jordan has with Nike.”
The Liverpool Logo, Nike Logo and LeBron ‘King’ James’s sign. Masterpiece. This would be the first item of clothing released by Nike in collaboration with LeBron and L.F.C.
What percentage of Liverpool F.C. does Nike’s star Lebron James hold?
Although, James is a minority stake holder in the club, Liverpool has enjoyed a great deal of success since his inclusion. In 2011, LeBron bought 2% of Liverpool with respect to his business partnership with Maverick Carter for $6.5 million. As per the latest valuations, Liverpool is valued around $4.1 billion.
Therefore, the investment put in by LeBron is now worth a whopping $44 million. Carter vocalized on the deal made between James and the English club, “Working with Fenway Sports Group for the past decade has taught LeBron and me so much about the business on a global scale, and we’ve always believed it would lead to something bigger.”
“We are proud to be part of this iconic ownership group and are excited about the opportunities that come with that to continue creating change and empowering people of every race, gender and background to be part of the process.”
For the time being, it is uncertain that Liverpool would dawn the jersey by Nike in a game. However, with LeBron James name, the sales would ride on a rocket.
