The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has revealed that quick processes are been made to get a new kit sponsor for the national teams after the contract with sportswear giant Adidas expired.
Adidas sponsored the national teams with grace granted to the teams by the German firm who kit countries like World champions Germany, Argentina and Russia.
The NFF Director of Marketing, Idris Adama, has revealed that lines of communication have been opened between the Federation and other firms who are interested in kiting the Super Eagles. Adama had a little chat with supersports
“Though the contract has come to an end, we have a grace period which we need to play around with and within the grace period we will still be wearing Adidas and within that period, we will get a new sponsor,” Adama told supersport.com.
“Before the end of March-April, we should be able to launch something new into the market, we are working hard to get there and it will definitely happen because the Super Eagles and the other national teams are great brands in the world.
“Despite the fact we are not in at Africa Cup of Nations, we still remain the champions of Africa until a winner emerges from the ongoing tournament.
“We have several companies across the globe that have expressed their interest to take over as kit suppliers, but we are carefully looking at the options we have.
“What we need now is a quality brand that we can partner with. It is also an advantage to that kit partner because we are the best thing that has happened to football in Africa.
“In every business there should be financial valuation, we should be able to look at the financial position of what the partnership is going to look like and how it can be beneficial to both parties.”
The marketing director concluded saying “the Federation will need work hard to secure a kit firm who will not only be supplying kits but will also be part of football development in the country.
