So yesterday sports kit manufacturers Nike Unveiled the new "swoosh design" kit for the super eagles of Nigeria for the upcoming 2021 African cup of Nations and 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.




The new kit designs which according to kit manufacturers Nike follows in the footsteps of the Naija Apparel collection, inspired by local fabric and infused with a ‘traditional aesthetic’.

In 2018 Nike broke records with the superstar unveiling of the Naija Kit for the 2018 world cup which became an instant hit worldwide. As it had 3 million pre-orders for the Naija Apparel design...



A statement from Nike read "In 2018, Naija changed the game with a collection for the ages that set a new standard for how Nike approaches federation design,”
“In 2020, Nigeria picks up right where they left off with a home kit that fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design.”

“The kit’s pattern was hand drawn and is highly symbolic of Nigerian heritage with nods to nobility and family,” continues the statement. “Nigeria’s crest is placed centrally on the chest with a Swoosh underneath it.
“The player names and numbers integrate the eagle feather into the application. ‘Naija’ appears inside the neck of jersey and on the back of the socks in a new typeface.”

Will it kick off with the Darling Supporters like the Naija Apparel design did?

Time will tell.
