[wysija_form id=”1″]April 27, 2015 – Leading sports branding organisation, Nike is set to splash $750,000 on national teams in Nigeria. This is based on the three and half year contract it signed with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick and General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi signed in behalf of NFF while NIKE’s African Football Sports Marketing Director, Tina Salminen signed for Nike.
The American sports agency will also supply kits to the tune of $1 million to the national teams for two years 2017 and 2018.
There are also various bonuses specified for any of the National Teams that qualifies for major international championships, with the Super Eagles to earn up to the sum of $500,000 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.
“We are comfortable with the contract, because NIKE came across during the negotiations as being fluid and ready to listen to our demands. That is always the key aspect; you always need a partner with a listening ear.
“Nigeria football is happy to associate with a global leader and I am much convinced this is just the beginning. As we go along, NIKE may also be willing to partner with some of our domestic Clubs and even the League Management Company”, the NFF President said.
