The UEFA Europa League final was an experience that Chelsea Football Club fans will never forget in their lifetime and it was made even more special by Hankook Tyre.

On May 15th, the Tokyo-based tyre company (who are the seventh largest tyre company in the world) took their special custom-built Performance Jersey to the pubs in London and Lisbon so fans of both Chelsea and fellow finalist SL could “Be One with It”.

The Peformance Jersey is packed with the latest technology that reacts in real-time to the developments which are unfolding in the football match which you are watching.

Our favourite part was the inflating shoulder pads that bring the pressure based on the situation which is currently unfolding on the pitch. There’s also LED effects which light up the badge, number and even messages such as “GO” and “GOAL”, take all that and add a vibration feature to the shirt and it’s definitely the best next thing to actually being on the pitch.

It’s not just football which Hankook Tyre love. They also are a major sponsor in the motorsport world. They supply the tyres to the Super GT Hankook KTR team of the Asian Le Mans and Super GT series.

Their involvement with Hankook Team Farnbacher in the GT class of the Le Mans series stretches all the way back to 2009.

Hankook are also sponsors of German giants Borussia Dortmund who made it all the way to the Champions League final at Wembley this season. They just love sport!
