Nike have announced a new partnership with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), running from April 1st 2015 until at least 2018. The partnership will see Nike supply Nigeria with match day and training kits for the men’s and women’s teams at every level, from senior to under-17s. Nike are replacing adidas, who had supplied the Super Eagles with kits for the past 12 years.
“We are very pleased to partner with the Nigeria Football Federation, one of Africa’s premier teams,” said Laurent Payre, Nike Africa VP / General Manager. “The passion for football in Nigeria is renowned and Nike is committed to supporting and advancing the game at all levels through inspiration and innovation for young men and women.”
NFF President Amaju Pinnick said, “This exciting partnership with Nike signifies our commitment toward building and strengthening a successful football future in Nigeria. The game enjoys a huge following across the country and we want to fuel participation and ultimately the success of our future national teams.”
The 2015 home and away Nike Nigeria kits will feature a generic design due to the short time frame, and Nike will produce their first unique Nigeria kits in 2016. Nigeria join the likes of Brazil, England, France, China, South Africa and the US as national teams partnered with Nike.
