Despite signing with UNIQLO back in 2018, Roger Federer‘s role as the Japanese clothing purveyor’s Global Brand Ambassador has been marred by a branding dispute with Nike. With his sponsorship transfer, Federer entered a lawsuit over the “RF” branding used prominently during his 15 years with Nike.
Marking the end of a two-year legal dispute with Federer regaining rightful ownership of his “RF” logo, UNIQLO has released its first cap centered around the motif. Priced at ¥1,990 JPY (approximately $19 USD), the simple cap style features “RF” on the front with “ROGER” and UNIQLO branding marking the rear. Coming in eight colorways chosen by Federer, the headwear is set to be available exclusively via UNIQLO December 8.
