Nike To Design New Merchandise For The Super Eagles
The Super Eagles were the talk of both the football and fashion worlds during Russia 2018, thanks to the wavy World Cup kit that Nike designed for the team.
With the hype around the kit slowly waning, it seems we should be expecting a similarly strong follow-up, as Nike is currently in talks with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to design new merch for the Super Eagles!

Going by the discussion both parties had at their meeting yesterday in Abuja, the new designs are expected to hit stores in the summer of next year. Apparently, Nike is also making plans with the NFF to see that the new merch is made available to more fans across the country once it's launched.
The Guardian reports that Nike will be opening more outlets in Nigeria in anticipation of the launch next year, because, honestly, if the new designs turn out to be just as banging as the current one, they are bound to sell out just as fast. So, we have our fingers crossed.
