NFF, NIKE strategise for another world-beater apparel
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and its kit-sponsor, NIKE, yesterday revealed they have taken a further step forward in the plan to unveil another set of kits for the national teams that would wow the world as those launched on the eve of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals did.
After a virtual meeting on Monday attended by NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, Vice Presidents, Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko, NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, NIKE’s Tina Salminen, David Watson and Lee Murphy, among others, the federation said the kit designers were putting finishing touches to the designs with observations and comments taken.
“The new designs were to have been 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,” the federation said.
Recall that 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 May 29, 2018.
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.
