Watch Ninja Tease a Historic Collaboration with adidas
Online streaming phenomenon Tyler Blevins (better known as Ninja) has signed a deal with adidas, making him the first pro gamer in history to ink a deal with the sportswear giant.
Although the specific details of the colab are yet to be revealed, adidas told Engadget that the partnership is intended to show their commitment to gaming culture and ‘supporting creators who show dedication to excelling in their field’.
‘I can’t say what is in the works with adidas’, Ninja said on Microsoft’s Mixer Stream, ‘but use your imagination’.
Ninja recently made headlines when he split with Twitch, the world’s largest online streaming platform.

I remember when people used to ask me whether I could actually make a career out of gaming. I remember when people used to tell me this would never be “real.” There are no shortcuts. Only long days. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t catch your dreams. Choose your path. Put the TIME IN. I’m humbled, and excited, to officially announce my partnership with @adidasoriginals. https://t.co/Xpc0Iufoc0
