Nike and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have extended their contract agreement until December 2026.
Amaju Melvin Pinnick, the President of the NFF, confirmed this development on Thursday, noting that negotiations had been ongoing for the past month before the extension.
Pinnick said that the new agreement lends credence to Nike’s faith in Nigerian football and what the executive board is doing as a federation. He encouraged other sponsors and partners to extend their agreements and also used the opportunity to plead for more players in corporate Nigeria to support the Nigeria game.
Nike also used the opportunity of its contract signing with the NFF to announce the opening of its mega-shop in Lagos. The impressive office, which is located in Ikeja Mall in Lagos, is part of Nike’s Africa expansion sales plan to open offices in strategically marketable areas in the country. The office would stock the best of Nike sports and casual wear for the everyday Nigerian.
The company also promised a similar shop in the coming days in Abuja.
