adidas has become an official sponsor and official licensee of the '99 Women's World Cup. The announcement was made at the Super Show in Atlanta where adidas also offered a sneak preview of its official tournament game ball called the "Icon," the first-ever ball specifically produced for the Women's World Cup event. adidas will also produce an apparel line leading up to the '99 World Cup, including a line specially designed for female soccer players (WWC). MORE ADIDAS: adidas CEO Steve Wynne tells SGB that soccer will continue to be the "heart of our brand," but it intends to "broaden" its basketball, training and women performance brands.
