Nike sues Reebok for using Tim Tebow's name on NY Jets jerseys
New York, Mar 29 (ANI): Nike filed a lawsuit against Reebok in federal court in New York on Wednesday for selling Tim Tebow Jets' jerseys without permission.
According to CNBC, Reebok's right to put names on new jerseys, like Tebow's name on this New York Jets jersey, had expired last week.
"We have filed a complaint relating to unauthorized use of Tim Tebow's name on New York Jets related apparel," the New York Daily quoted Nike's statement.
"Nike is authorized and licensed to use Tim Tebow's name on products. We have no further comment at this stage," it said.
Nike is scheduled to introduce official NFL apparel on April 3.
The league's official merchandising website - NFLShop.com - is selling Tebow Jets' jerseys produced by Reebok. (ANI)
