American Kit manufacturers, Nike have extended their contract agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation until December 2026.
While confirming the contract extension, on Thursday via presser, the NFF, as has been its opaqueness in business dealings, refused to disclose the details of the new contract.
according to the statement made available, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick, NFF boss, said negotiations for the new deal had been on-going for the past one month before the American foot-and-bodywear behemoth agreed to extend their relationship with Nigeria Football.
“We talked about several areas they needed to look into and we finally got a deal and extension of the contract until December 2026. I give the credit for this to Members of the NFF Executive Committee and the General Secretary. The new agreement lends credence to Nike’s faith in Nigeria Football and what we are doing as a Federation.
It is a wake-up call for our other sponsors and partners to extend their agreements and for more players in Corporate Nigeria to support the Nigeria game.”
Nike officially opened their Lagos mega-shop on Thursday located at the Ikeja Mall, in the heart of one of the city’s main business districts. The mega-shop is the first of planned major outlets on Lagos island and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
NFF and Nike first renewed the sponsorship for four years in Asaba, Delta State in 2018
