American Sportswear giants, Nike have unveiled new 2020 kits for Nigerian national football teams.

The jerseys are being unveiled ahead of Super Eagles 2021 Africa Cup of Nations match-day three home qualifying encounter against Sierra Leone.

Nike’s Senior Director for Global Communications, Heidi Burgett said the new jersey design is inspired by the tradition agbada.

Sharing images showing the jersey on his Twitter page, Burgett wrote:

“The home kit’s hand-drawn design fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design.

“Away kit trim is inspired by Onaism. A broader collection of Super Eagles apparel includes a poncho, vest, dress, and more.”

The kits which feature the traditional Nigerian green and white colours have made a huge impression with fans taking kindly to the snazzy and vibrant design.

The home kit features a hand drawn design which fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design. The home kit also features the crest of the National Football Federation placed centrally at the chest area, the Nike logo under the crest, and jersey number beneath the logo.

The shorts are solid green shorts while the socks have the green, white and lemon colours.

The away jersey is more understated with its simple deep green design and matching patterns on the trim of the V-neck and the sleeves.

The trim of the away kit trim is inspired by Onaism, an art movement of Yoruba civilization that fuses designs, ornamentation and motifs found in traditional Yoruba carvings and textiles with modern art pieces.

The 2020 kits also have a broader collection of Super Eagles apparel which include a poncho, vest and a dress.

Nike’s bold designs with the Super Eagles continues on the heels of the award-winning jerseys that were released for the 2018 World Cup.
