Three codes of football fever swept Nike’s Abbotsford headquarters on Tuesday.

Carlton President Stephen Kernahan stood tall for the AFL.

He was joined by Brisbane Broncos great Gorden Tallis, and Western Sydney Wanderers captain Michael Beauchamp, to showcase the new range of Nike football boots and jumpers, due for release early 2014.

The trio addressed about 100 Nike staff from across Australia, sharing their experiences of football, leadership, and the quest for premiership glory.

Nike Australia Sports Marketing Manager, Brett Tamburrino, says it was a valuable experience for staff.

“It was great to have Nike’s local teams represented, fuelling passion for success and striving for ultimate glory. We are fortunate to have these guys as part of the Nike family.”

Nike is an official sponsor of the Carlton Football Club.
