Brand new jerseys for the Super Eagles have been released by sportswear giants Nike.
The newly designed kits retain a resemblance to the much loved old designs in that the home kits maintain a patterned design while the away strip remains an all-green ensemble with the main difference being a patterned green design around the neckline and sleeves.
Speaking on the new kits, Nike Senior Director of Global Communications Heidi Burgett said the new home strip design incorporates features of the traditional agbada robe fused with modern football design while the away strip is inspired by a form of traditional Yoruba art and design known as Onaism.
The NFF had announced that new jerseys for the national team would be launched on 5 February in New York in time for Nigeria’s next round of international fixtures in March against Sierra Leone in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
A larger collection of Super Eagles apparel that includes a poncho, vest, dress and other accessories will also be released alongside the new jerseys Ms Burgett said.
