Nigeria New Nike Jersey Hit Lagos October 1.
The new kits will be available in retail sports shops across Lagos state
for fans and stakeholders to buy off the shelves.
News Rain also reliably gathered the kits will be available in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja at a later date due to logistics reason.
The new Nike kits which have now replaced the ‘adire’ stripes launched before the 2018 FIFA World Cup final in Russia was officially launched by seven members of the current Super Eagles and Falcons players.
Super Eagles co-Captain Williams Troost- Ekong (Udinese); Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City); Victor Osimhen (Napoli); Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal) and Alex Iwobi (Everton) as well as Falcons Asisat Oshoala FC (Barcelona) and Norway-based Rashidat Ajibade launched the new Nigeria kit via Instagram on Sunday, September 20, 2020.
It is learnt that the players conducted the photo shoots themselves in complete compliance with COVID-19 health protocols.
It will be recalled that the kit was unveiled before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic but the national team has not been able to put on the jersey since they have not played any match this year due to the novel virus.
It is expected that the Super Eagles will launch the new wears during the FIFA window for international friendlies next month against Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia.
