Nike Golf launching football themed golf gear
June 14, 2011

Nike Tour Staff athlete Francesco Molinari will be showing his true colours when he tees it up at Royal Park for this week's BMW Italian Open, after it was revealed that the football-loving golfer will be sporting kit featuring branding belonging to his beloved Inter Milan.
 
The 28-year-old two-time European Tour winner will be wearing the new outfit, which has been launched by Nike Golf to celebrate its sponsorship of football teams across Europe, on one of the opening two days at the Italian Open.
 
Speaking about the new logoed outfit, Molinari said: "I love the idea of being able to show off your sporting allegiances in other contexts but I'm sure I'm going to get a bit of stick from my brother as he is a Juventus fan."


 
Nike, which sponsors a number of Europe's leading football teams including Inter Milan, Manchester United, Barcelona, Arsenal, Juventus and Celtic will be bringing out a range of football team-logoed golf gear later this Autumn, featuring shoes, polo shirts and golf bags.
 
Molinari will be wearing a pair of Inter Milan-logoed Nike Golf Lunar Control golf shoes and a logoed Dri-Fit Tech colour block polo shirt, while the logoed gear also includes a new lightweight Nike Collegiate Carry Bag emblazoned with the team's famous club crest.
 
It is understood that all of the football squads involved will be wearing the logoed product whenever they take to the fairways.
 
The footwear and bag goes on sale in pro shops and high street retailers from November, whilst the apparel will only be sold at football club stores and online channels including www.nikestore.com  in the initial launch phase.
