ITF agrees with sporting goods companies on use of manufacturer's identification

ITF agrees with sporting goods companies on use of manufacturer's identification

The International Tennis Federation has agreed with sporting goods companies to create a common standard on the use of manufacturers' logos on apparel at the four Grand Slams.
The ITF and the Grand Slam Committee said Wednesday that an 8-square-inch (52-square-centimeter) patch can be used on sleeves by manufacturers. The written and non-written identification cannot exceed half the allowed space, however.
Identification on other parts of a garment will continue to be confined to 4 square inches (26 square centimeters).
The agreement, called the "Dress Rule" by the ITF, went into effect Wednesday. It will be enforced at all ITF tournaments, including the four Grand Slams.
In June, German sportswear manufacturer Adidas won a temporary court ruling to allow three stripes to run down the side of its clothing at Wimbledon.
Adidas argued that the stripes are not the standard logo. It said the official logo is the "performance logo" depicting three stripes arranged in a pyramid with Adidas written underneath.
Nike and Puma were also involved in Wednesday's agreement, according to the ITF.
