    Pro Evo / WE sponsors Adidas agree to buy Reebok for about 3.1Billion Euros.

    Wonder what that means for the NFL and NBA. I believe Reebok make ALL kits and trainng wear for ALL teams.

    I think Adidas will still keep the name Reebok but just take in all the revenue.
    Meaning that there still will be Reebok trainers and stuff but just being run by Adidas. Kinda like how Ford the car manufacturer owns smaller groups like Rover, etc.

    The only thing I care about is that we'll now have Reebok licences in PES.

    Konami are catching up with EA finally.

    hahah unintentionally catching up :p

    Not many teams that have reebok sponsors though right, tell me if im correct..

    i thought most were just Nike/Adidas with a few odd Kappas here and there.

    Nothing will change Adidas will just take profit from the "Reebok" brand. But just maybe, Reebok will be in PES6/WE10, boots and whatever else Reebok make.

    The yellow one was poo. The black ones? I agree with England 22 apart from the crappy grey on the sleeves.

    As for the new white kit - great design but the badge is a transfer! Please, sweat shops, put a real badge on for 10p more.......
