Arab youth and sports ministers on Wednesday announced their boycott of sports apparel manufacturer Adidas over the company's sponsorship of last month's Jerusalem marathon.
"All companies that have sponsored the marathon of Jerusalem, including Adidas, will be boycotted," said Saudi Prince Nawaf bin Faisal, chairman of the Arab youth and sports council of ministers, after a meeting in Jeddah.
But it appears that such a boycott is easier said than done.

An Egyptian national football team also said that they cannot get non-Adidas clothing in time for their upcoming matches. They said that they used to use Puma clothing and were ridiculed about how unprofessional they looked, so now they must use Adidas clothing to regain their reputation.
