Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has unveiled the home and away kits for all the national teams.
Two of the teams, the U-23 Dream Team VI will begin their campaign in the men’s football event of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games against Japan this week, while the Golden Eaglets will play against Niger in the qualifying series of the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations this weekend in the new kits.
The new Nike Football home and away kits featuring Dri-FIT technology. The home kit is a solid green, with white ribbing around the back of the modern crewneck collar.
In keeping true to the national colours of Nigeria, the new away kit is white with a green stripe that runs the length of the sides of shirt and shorts, and a green stripe along the back of the collar.
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts, where it quickly evaporates. This allows players to perform at their best by remaining cooler, drier and more comfortable.
The laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in the key areas of the kit are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation and helping regulate players’ temperatures.
The shirt is crafted using mesh fabric that makes up the full front and back panels of the shirt, increasing airflow and facilitating enhanced movement.
