Unreliable info with dead link at the end of article[edit]

The final paragraph has a link which is dead. Also,it claims that several Adidas executives are being investigated in the NCAA Basketball scandal, however in the Wiki article about the scandal, only one executive is named. Dead link should be removed and the name of the executive should be included.Willierembis (talk) 22:20, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. SilkTork (talk) 14:02, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

There is speculation in the sponsorship section that Adidas are negotiating with Arsenal F.C for the 2019 Premier League season. There is no citation or confirmation that this is the case. 86.0.224.254 (talk) 11:59, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

 Done The claim was removed as unreferenced, WP:NOTACRYSTALBALL.  spintendo  23:27, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Please change net income to 668 million euros(772 million USD) from 83.8 billion U.S. dollars, for 2015. Enesuzel (talk) 18:38, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: You would need a really reliable source to source this claim. It if very implausible that their net income went from 772 to 83,800 millions so fast. L293D ( • ) 19:01, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 28 June 2018[edit]

Please change their net income of 83.8 billion USD to 772 million USD. 83.8 billion USD is a bogus number. It's not possible to have net income exceeding their total revenue.

Please check for reference;

https://www.adidas-group.com/media/filer_public/18/ce/18ce3230-63a0-4d1f-aa3b-41196783618b/factsheet_q4_2015.pdf

Even fortune 10 companies such as Walmart, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway do not have a net income reaching anywhere near 83 billion USD.

It's inaccurate information. Enesuzel (talk) 21:41, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Fixed That was some vandalism that has been undone. Fish+Karate 09:26, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

As for the German pronunciation, a [ʔ] should be inserted initially per Help:IPA/Standard German, i.e. [ˈʔadiˌdas]. Miaowmiaowmew (talk) 12:57, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

I wish to add Adidas to the category of: Category:Skateboard shoe companies. They sponsor a good deal of skaters and should be listed in this category. Here is a mention of their skate shoes from 2013: https://web.archive.org/web/20131224113211/http://blog.ccs.com/go/article/view/skate/263069/adidas-skateboarding-ccs-pro-signature-selects

I want to make a small edit to the product section:- 3.2.2 'Baseball' heading should be placed properly. Line brakes required before "Baseball" as now its appearing as the part of the paragraph or content of 3.2.1 Raavi Mohanty 07:29, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

 Done ... although it leaves a lot of white space on my screen. It would probably be better to remove one of the three images in the soccer/football section. – Jonesey95 (talk) 05:10, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Request for edit: Adidas no longer owns TaylorMade and Ashworth[edit]

The entry still states that Adidas owns TaylorMade and Ashworth, while Adidas sold TaylorMade and the associated brands to KPS Capital Partners in 2017.[1]

Correct German pronunciation[edit]

I just saw how the pronunciation suggestion here ("AH-dee-DAHS") leads to so many weird tries all around the non-German speaking world ^^

It's more like "uddy-dus" whereas "dus" should be pronounced as in "dust", and "uddy" just as in "buddy".

You shouldn't put an accent on any syllable, I guess, but I'm not linguistically educated, so it's just the opinion of a guy on the Interweb ;) Here's a good explanation (actual pronunciation is at 31 seconds) by a native German speaker. Here's my try. --Sebw89 (talk) 16:04, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
