"We believe that innovative branding is one of the key aspects of professionalism and that's what Nike stands for," Dayton Dutch Lions Business Development Manager Koen Driessen said. "It's about recognizing quality and we trust that they will bring us that. We are looking forward to playing with passion under Nike."
