NFF, NIKE to unveil new design kits for Nigeria National Teams

Nigeria National Teams-kits

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and its global brand kit-sponsor NIKE, have taken a further step forward in the plan to unveil another set of kits for the Nigeria National Teams that would wow the world as those launched for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.

The new designs were launched earlier in the year, but plans went askew as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. The Super Eagles would launch the new wears during the FIFA window for international friendlies next month.

It would be recalled that American sportswear giant, NIKE received three million orders for the Super Eagles’ 2018 FIFA World Cup kit prior to the release of the jerseys into the market on 29th May 2018.

On the first day of the sales in London, United Kingdom on Friday, 1st June 2018 (which also was the eve of Nigeria’s high-profile pre-World Cup friendly with England’s Three Lions at Wembley), NIKE shops ran out of stock within one hour of putting out the jerseys.

Apart from the tremendous success on the counter, NIKE has continued to express its delight with the running agreement with the NFF, initially signed in London in April 2015, with the various Nigeria National Teams qualifying for major competitions and impressing at continental championships.
