Sportswear giant, Nike, has unveiled the new Super Eagles jerseys in New York ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations match-day three home qualifying encounter against Sierra Leone. In their latest offering, the home kit as expected comes in traditional green and white national colours with a design that fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design.
On the other hand, the away kit is inspired by Onaism, and it spots an all-grey colour with the pitch green and white patterns in the V-shaped collar and sleeves.

Nike enjoyed immense success with their previous Super Eagles “Naija” design, which enjoyed record-breaking sales ahead of its release before the 2018 World Cup. The last design was accepted globally and was named the best kit of the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Nike returned as the kit sponsors of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) in a deal signed in April 2015 and extended in 2018.
