The Internet went into overdrive with football fans blown away by one of the greatest comebacks in football, but the reaction below was probably the one that best shows the emotion of football (and it wasn't even a final!)

We celebrated the historic moment (no team in the Champions League had ever come back down 4-0 from the 1st leg) and Neymar's phenomenal performance with a social post on our IG channel.

"Nike crossed cultures in an emphatically strong way with this event. A new benchmark and a wholly bespoke standard. It will take some serious beating"

Vice Sports x Strike Night

Foot Mercato x Strike Night

The French website Foot Mercato (Online - 12,40M visits/month) also recapped the Strike Night contest through a short article & video clip.

The Hypervenom 3 Black launched on 2.27 and so far sell through has been strong. 32 units of the HV3 Phantom Black DF have been sold in the UK generating $8,788 in demand in just 2 days, versus the 20 units of the OG colorway that was sold for the past 2 weeks

There’s been a great uplift in demand around the black pack due to the strong colorway and Strike Night activation

The new colorway has also performed well with our main CS partners:

  • Intersport: Norway: 11 (1% sell through), Denmark: 77 (6% sell through), Sweden: 148 (2% sell through)
  • 11TeamSport: 33 units (13% sell through)
  • ProDirect: 138 units (12% sell through)
  • Unisport: 99 units (9.2% sell through)
  • Fútbol Emotion: 9 units (18% sell through)

Responses from FOTs on the new colorways has been phenomenal, with some examples captured in the screenshot below.

Last week, the Swedish Hypervenom 3 lead John Guidetti, posted his HV3 athlete animation on IG, FB & TW. The animation played off his new ‘bald-head & beard’ look, which fans picked up on calling him ‘Ragnar’ or ‘Lodbrok’, a legendary Viking leader and old Norse hero

The Nike Academy had two fixtures this week, the first at home to Notts County, which resulted in a comfortable 2-1 victory for the hosts. Goals came from Siriki Dembele (UK) and Cas Troosters (Belgium)

The second game proved a more difficult challenge as the team traveled to face a strong Oxford United side, in the end suffering a 1-0 defeat.
