The 2016 UEFA European Championship (simply referred to as Euro 2016) is the 15th edition of quadrennial international men’s football championship in Europe.
This is the third time France was chosen as the host. There are 24 teams have been playing in the contest since 10 June in 10 stadiums in 10 cities.
It reminds us the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, because Taiwan participated indirectly in the matches. A French daily newspaper Le Figaro said : 「Taiwan has already won the World Cup.」 It actually is our recycled jerseys won the match.
Nike already partnered with Taiwan textile industry for making this recycled jerseys four years ago in 2010 FIFA World Cup In Africa. In 2014 World Cup, there were 30% of teams wearing 「Made In Taiwan, MIT」jerseys. Their uniforms were made from recycled plastic bottles (PET, Polyethylene terephthalate). The material is lighter, more comfortable and 5 times sweat-absorbent than cotton. Each shirt comprised up to 8 recycled plastic bottles. This new green technology innovation reduces 30% energy consumption compared to traditional materials.
Not sure whether Taiwan “plays” Euro 2016 as usual.
