Question for written answer E-001502-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto (S&D)

 Subject:  Nike — illegal practices in the Single Market
 Answer in writing 

The Commission has fined Nike EUR 12.5 million for illegal practices that have damaged the Single Market. For 13 years, the sportswear company either banned or restricted traders from selling licensed merchandise of some of Europe’s most famous football clubs and federations to other EEA countries, resulting in higher prices for consumers.

1. Given that this is a clear breach of the EU’s competition rules, will the Commission introduce early warning measures that prevent this kind of violation being committed over such a long period of time?

2. How can the Commission guarantee that similar violations will not be repeated?

3. How will the Commission ensure that businesses and customers affected by this scandal are duly compensated?
