Bayer Leverkusen, a team that plays in the Bundesliga from Germany, it is perhaps the best-known team that has a name that comes from a brand that is not associated with football. In the case of the “Die Werkself“Which translates into Spanish as” company workers “, the nickname refers to the fact that the club was founded by workers of the pharmaceutical Bayer.
Beyond the German club, there is a great series of teams that have names in reference to world brands; Here is a list of the most outstanding ones today:
PSV Eindhoven – Philips
The full name of the Netherlands team is “Philips Sport Vereniging Eindhoven”. In this case it also has a fairly similar reference, after being founded in 1913 by workers from the Philips electronics company, from that country.
Red Bull Leipzig / Bragantino / New York – Red Bull
This case is much more recent and not of much history. The Austrian-based energy drink company Redbull has several teams around the world and all have the brand name as part of the team naming.
In South America the most resonant cases are the Sporting Cristal from Peru, next to the Cristal brewery, Equity of Colombia together with La Equidad Seguros and Emelec of Ecuador and the Electronic Company of Ecuador. In Mexico we can find Blue Cross with the same logo of the Cooperativa La Cruz Azul.
A very interesting case is that of an amateur team from England under the name of Cadbury Athletic FC., affiliated with the Cadbury confectionery company and uses the company’s violet color.
