Giant Sport Kit manufacturers, NIKE have extended their contract agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation until December 2026.

NIKE kitted the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia which was eccentrically successful with the kits selling out in a record time of three minutes as supporters pre ordered millions of them.

The design was also nominated for the London Design Museum’s Beazley Design of the Year.

NIKE were the official kit sponsors of the Super Eagles for the 2019 and 2021 AFCON as well as for the Super Falcons and other cadre teams.

President of NFF, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick said on Thursday that negotiations had been on-going for the past one month before the American foot-and-bodywear behemoth agreed to extend their relationship with Nigeria Football.

“We talked about several areas they needed to look into and we finally got a deal and extension of the contract until December 2026. I give the credit for this to Members of the NFF Executive Committee and the General Secretary. The new agreement lends credence to NIKE’s faith in Nigeria Football and what we are doing as a Federation. It is a wake-up call for our other sponsors and partners to extend their agreements and for more players in Corporate Nigeria to support the Nigeria game.

“We have also succeeded in getting our partners Nigerian Breweries PLC to extend their contract with the NFF by one year. Initially, their relationship with the NFF was due to end this year. We got talking and met several times, and finally they agreed to extend by another year after which they will perform a review of the relationship.”

The giant kit manufacturer also opened a mega store today at the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos to celebrate their contract renewal and are expected to launch other stores.
