What Soccer Players Are Sponsored By adidas

The list of what soccer players are sponsored by adidas shows the German giant is still No. 1 in the world of football.

When it comes to brands, adidas is the king of the of the soccer world. Nike, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar under its belt, gives the German giant a run for its money, but there’s no doubt the official partner of FIFA is the biggest brand, especially when you look at what soccer players are sponsored by adidas.

More teams, clubs and players sport adidas gear than any other brand, edging out Nike is most categories. That was again the case at the 2018 World Cup

While clubs and national teams are a major part of a brand’s identity, everyone really wants to know what soccer players are sponsored by adidas. Fortunately, the company boasts the best player in the world — Lionel Messi — as its flagship player sponsorship. The rest of the players aren’t too shabby, either. 

Here’s a list of the most prominent players sponsored by adidas. This is by no means an exhaustive list and it is subject to change.
