NIKE F.C. Collection Fall 2015

Park Perfect: The Fall 2015 Nike F.C. Collection

Inspired by the memorable “Park Life” football advertisement, Nike F.C. celebrates grassroots football.

Gigantic stadiums are nice — as are perfect grass, referees, regulations and tactics.
Raheem Sterling

But nice isn’t necessary. After all, football is a simple game. Two teams, two goals, a ball and an inclination to risk everything are all it takes for the local park with its potholed pitch to rival a modern stadium and its finely groomed surface.

The crowd may be a man and his dog rather than 100,000 fervent fans, but at Sunday league football, a grassroots English institution, the stakes are the same.

Nike F.C commemorates this devotion with the Fall 2015 Nike F.C. collection, which also nods to the classic 1997 Nike advertisement “Park Life.” Made to celebrate the league’s commitment to the beautiful game, the ad places the era’s superstar strikers, including Ian Wright, on London’s iconic Hackney Marshes alongside faithful weekly players.
