There are strong indications that the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF could be at loggerhead with any national coach or player who fails to comply with the terms and conditions as contained in the federation’s recent sponsorship deal with new kit supplier, NIKE.
Led by NFF President Amaju Pinnick, the country’s football authority were in London last week, where they brokered a fresh contractual agreement with the world known company.
The deal according to the federation runs into $750, 000 worth of kits to be supplied to the various National teams in Nigeria in the first year of the contract
Details of the contract, signed on Thursday showed that the products value would increase in the second year, with American company NIKE committed to supplying kits to the value of $1million to the Nigeria National Teams with NIKE ready to supply kits worth $1million to the National Teams in the year 2017 and 2018.
While Kit supply contract with Adidas lasted before its expiration, some Players and Coaches including Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi were fingered to have used other materials branded with different company names at the 2014 World Cup, a situation that angered former National team Kit suppliers, Adidas.
Giving an overview on the terms and conditions enshrined in the agreement reached with the kit supplier, Director NFF Marketing department, Idris Adama warned that no form of laxity would be condoned by any coach or player who refused to comply with the clauses contained in the contractual agreement.
Adama further disclosed “the federation is not ready to give room for any player or coach to violate our agreement with our new kit supplier. As a matter of fact, before any player is invited to the national camp, he or she must be informed.
“The marketing department will have to work with Complaint and Legal department to ensure that the clauses in our agreement are adhered to. We will not want a repeat of what happened before.”
