Um, what? I think you've got that backwards. Audi gives MLS money so that MLS writers/broadcasters say "Audi MLS playoffs". Athletes appear in commercials to help advertise their sponsors. Hey Roberto Alomar, say you like McCain fruit punch and we'll give you money. This is the whole point of sponsorship.

Sometimes the advertising can be mutually beneficial, especially in this kind of a case where the sponsor is the bigger deal than the thing it is sponsoring. But the idea is still that the sponsor (Nike) is getting advertising from the entity they are sponsoring (Canada Soccer).

A kit sponsor gets support from a team by being on everything to do with the team and being on every bit of apparel worn by teams and their fans. 

I get what you’re saying but your examples are off - we aren’t the Nike Canadian Men’s National Team.  We are the CMNT and our apparel sponsor is Nike.  

I think it’s great to be tied to the biggest name in sport but it would be nice to balance that with some results of what they’re doing for us.  As of now we have ZERO planned across all levels and age groups at the men’s level besides a mandated qualifier.

It's January 9th. Maybe give the deal a full two weeks before judging it?

I know it’s early but not too early to realize we’re already not having a January camp.. which we’ve had with past sponsors.  Even last year amidst all the mayhem we had a u23 camp. 

Meh, maybe come the official announcement they’ll announce friendlies in conjunction.

We don’t need a January camp we are Canada with our past history of great success at the youth national and senior national men’s team why would Canada need a January camp. Now the US with their history of failures at both the youth a senior men’s national team level they need a January camp with a few games included, but Canada no , why would this great men’s soccer nation need a January camp ? Oh shit what have I done I’ve criticized the national team and the CSA something that it seems is a no no on these boards .😉

Ah. So your problem is about a lack of friendlies, and not actually with a pic of Sinclair pointing at a Nike logo.

Is there a timeline for when a jersey will be released? 

Was wondering the exact same thing, guess we won't have to wait long since the WNT plays a friendly vs Norway in Spain (in) 5 days

From the practices they've had already seen what the training gear will look like which is pretty standard 

Looking forward to hearing when they go on sale

The women wore all black against Switzerland. I don't like the lack of red if you exclude the CSA logo.

Agree, black Canada gear is garbage.  If we wear any other colour but red and white it should be blue, as in the centennial kits.

Am I the only one that hates blue on a Canada jersey? A lack of blue is what separates us from Americans... and a lot of other countries.

I never liked the centennial jersey, but I accepted it as a one off to honour that first game.

I think everyone just liked the maple leaf crest. 

I didn't like the blue either. I wanted to buy it, but at the price i was thinking when would i wear it to a game again. 

Hate not having some kinda of red.

It does pose a question...

How much more black can it be?  The answer is none...none more black

I hope those are temporary. Doesn't look like it though.

never understood the whole black with Canada hockey hopefully we don’t go down that same path 

I may be in the minority on this one because I always thought the black hockey jerseys were pretty badass.  As an alternate short colour, I don't mind it.

wouldn't mind it if it was a 3rd jersey but I  don't think our away jersey should be black
