Nigeria World Cup Jerseys Sold Out Everywhere As Superfans Queued For A Day.
Fans queued for hours to get the latest design jerseys for World Cup Start today.
Dozens of people queued outside Nike’s flagship store on Oxford Street, London, before it opened yesterday morning in a bid to get their hands on a Nigeria’s Fifa World Cup football kit.
The Nigerian Football Federation revealed that the Super Eagles’ kit has received over three million pre-orders. Fans of the national team said they went to the London store after hearing the kit was sold out online.
All fans are only allowed to pick two items from the London store and many of them were gunning for either the home or away kits, which are priced at £64 One avid fan said he had been queuing since 6am. He said he had to get his kit ahead of the friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and England tomorrow.
He says the kit reminds him of “the old 90s kit that used to be in the premiership and that was when the best kits were around,”
Christina Tubes, who had been queuing up since 6am, said she could not buy the kit online.
Damola Timeyin, 33, who works in an advertising agency said that as a Nigerian it was imperative he got his hands on the kit: “As a Nigerian passport holder I think it is my duty to get this kit for the World Cup. To be honest it is going to be the best looking team in the World Cup, hopefully our team gets past the group stages so we can actually wear them.”
The Fifa World Cup begins starts today in Russia.
