NFF to get Technical Kit sponsor soon

The Nigeria Football Federation will get a ‘technical kit sponsor’ to kit the national teams, with their contract with current kit sponsors, Adidas set to run out on December 31, SL10.ng has been told.
Nigeria’s contract with Adidas will end this month, with the German sportswear giants unwilling to extend the relationship and with the Nigeria Football Federation yet to secure another kit deal with another kit company, General Secretary of the NFF Musa Amadu says they will get a ‘technical kit supplier’ for the national teams in the meantime.
“We are working on getting a new kit sponsor and we do not have a timeframe but we are working on getting one. As much as possible, we will try to get a technical kit sponsor – a technical kit supplier – to kit our various national teams. It is a transition period and obviously we are in a transition period as far as so many matters are concerned with regards to Nigerian football and I’m sure we will get over it,” Amadu said.
The current relationship with Adidas started in 2004 when the German outfit took over from American sportswear giants, Nike. It is still unclear why Adidas decided against renewing their contract with the NFF, but it has been reported in some quarters that the Glass House ‘violated’ some terms of the contract.
The Nigeria Football Federation, however, has yet to give an official reason why the kit deal will not be renewed.
