Nigeria’s World Cup Kit Sold Out in the UK

Share

The clamour for the new Nigeria World Cup kit was at unprecedented levels before its release this morning, and less than three hours later it was sold out.

The Super Eagles probably aren't going to win the World Cup this year, but I for one will enjoy watching Mikel rove around as a number 10 playing short first time passes whilst looking like he's been to a day rave.

Ahead of Saturday's worldwide friendly match against the Three Lions of England, fans have gone out in their hundreds on the streets of London, queuing up for Nigeria's new Nike kits.

The kit is reputed to be the most handsome of all the national teams to play in the world cup in Russian Federation, and had racked up 3 million pre-orders before its release.

One said: "Nigeria's kit is bloody attractive".

The kit was to be available on May 29 but Nike pushed the date back to June 1 to accommodate the demand.

Football kit collectors were also keen to get their hands on the funky shirts, as well as profiteers looking to make some quick cash.

German sports apparel manufacturer adidas, meanwhile, have 12 teams at the World Cup, winning this year's kit competition, as Reuters reported.

Nigeria may not be favourites for the World Cup, but they seem to have won fans over with their new kit for Russian Federation. It's sportswear. It's made with that audience in mind, properly understanding what it is that people who love kits outside of just team association like about them.
