Nigeria Football 2020 Olympics Kits Unveiled

Via Nike News

Earlier this week Nike released images of the new 2020 Nigeria Football Olympics Kits. After the success of the 2018 Nigeria World Cup kit, there’s no surprise that we’re getting some new threads for the Olympics. Safe to say Nigeria will have one of the best uniforms in Tokyo this summer. Some unique features about the kit below:

  • The kit’s pattern was hand drawn and is highly symbolic of Nigerian heritage with nods to nobility and family.
  • Nigeria’s crest is placed centrally on the chest with a Swoosh underneath it.
  • The player names and numbers integrate the eagle feather into the application.
  • “Naija” appears inside the neck of jersey and on the back of the socks in a new typeface.

What are your thoughts on these designs? Did they surpass the 2018 World Cup designs?
