Worldwide Nike supports many teams and athletes. They design, manufacture, and supply gear for almost every sport imaginable. How much are those give-aways worth? Is the company going to go broke? Probably not. Nike is huge.
In this activity we take a look at retail prices and the actual costs of merchandise; the number of teams and athletes that Nike supports; the immensity of the company; and the fraction of Nike's business that this good publicity represents. We think that your students will have powerful opinions about their favorite sports brands. Enjoy!
