NFF, Nike to unveil new Super Eagles kits in New York

The Nigeria Football Federation is set to unveil Super Eagles' new jersey designed by Nike on February 5 in New York.

NFF boss Amaju Pinnick said after the launch in New York, the new jerseys will be unveiled in London and Nigeria, adding that the sportswear giants were keen to see the Super Eagles qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“Nike will be unveiling our new jerseys,” Pinnick told Punch.

“It’s for our World Cup preparation and trust me, it must be celebrated, something out of this world. These are some of the things we have tried to do out of the pitch. We try to create excitement, respect for the Nigerian brand.

“Yes, we did not win the (2018) World Cup, but we brought a jersey that stunned the world.

“In football, all these things count. In New York, on February 5, we would be launching the first set of jerseys with other Nike partners.

“Then we proceed to London and lastly, to Nigeria. We are working on that. They (Nike) want us to qualify.”

Nike extended their deal in 2018 with the NFF and will now unveil the new jersey ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations match-day three home qualifying encounter against Sierra Leone.
