NFF President Amanda Pinnick, wearing a chassis in Nigeria, expressed her satisfaction with Nike's new offering, pointing to the progress that has been made in comparison with the previous years.

"We are happy to be here now, now we have a better offer, Nike is a beautiful young man, we are one of only two countries sponsoring in Africa," said Pinnick

"I'm happy about this new deal. It's been a while when we wanted to go to the competition and we did not have a set … now Nike will have fun for all of our teams."

Despite the fact that Nigeria did not reach the knockout stages of the World Cup, jerseys were a great success with a large number of sales and acceptance around the globe.

NFF's second vice president, Mallam Shehu Dikko, said the sports giants immediately offered a contract after the World Cup in 2018.

"Nike was shocked!" They offered us this contract after the World Cup, they were knocking on signing, but we told them we were not in a hurry, and now we have a strong contract for the next four years, which will start until 2022, "Dikko said .

With a new offer, NFF will earn sales bonus kit, and the kit will be delivered directly to the NFF door.

Nike's Regional Sports Market Director for Africa, Tina Salminen, said the new design would be launched before the Olympics in 2020. She confirmed that "the same designer who designed this (current) will design a new one."
