Last week, Nike announced their decision to refuse cleats to the Iranian World Cup team, Team Melli. Nike’s actions single out the Iranian people and politicize an event that should be unifying the world, not further dividing us. If Nike won’t end their boycott, we stand ready to boycott Nike.
Tell Nike NOT to politicize the World Cup, and reverse their discriminatory decision:
Events like the World Cup provide a unique opportunity for nations around the world to rise above political disputes and come together.
Iranians around the world are proud to rally behind Team Melli against Nike’s unjust targeting, and show that Iran’s athletes deserve equal recognition in this internationally celebrated event.
We’ve teamed up with other Iranian American organizations including Aftab Committee, Iranian Alliances Across Borders, Iranian-American Bar Association, and United For Iran asking Nike to set aside politics and revert back to their original plan to provide players of Team Melli with cleats.
