• PHOTO: Nike Risk the Wrath of Spurs Fans After Giving Chelsea Superior Hashtag in Kit Launches

    News Sun 2 Jul 2017

    ​There isn’t much love lost between Tottenham and Chelsea, especially in recent years.

    The Blues ended Spurs’ title hopes during the 2015/16 season after Eden Hazard equalised to ensure Leicester would take the crown, while they also pipped their London rivals to the Premier League by seven points after another fruitless Tottenham championship bid.

    Nike recently acquired the rights to produce kits for both teams, but the promotion of the new shirts has left Tottenham fans miffed and angry, with Chelsea’s seemingly being given a superior hashtag.

    Chelsea were given ‘#WeAreThePride’, which has unsurprisingly upset Spurs supporters, who have had to make do with ‘#WatchUsRise’, which, while it works in highlighting the remarkable progress made by Mauricio Pochettino’s side in recent years, also indicates that Tottenham are some way behind Chelsea.

    While Spurs do indeed have a way to go before they can match Chelsea, fans are still fuming at the way Nike have promoted the respective kits.

    The two sides have a chance to lay down an early season marker when Tottenham and Chelsea meet at Wembley on the second weekend of the Premier League in August.
