Adidas Suspends Nigeria Contract as FA Row Continues


Nigeria kit sponsors adidas™ have put their contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on hold, with the country’s government yet to revert its decision to appoint a sole administrator for its football family.

The world football governing body has issued a deadline date of Tuesday, 8th July, for Nigeria to reinstate the sacked NFF president Aminu Maigari, its executive committee members and the congress.

AfricanFootball.com reports that German kit manufacturers view the latest development, which Fifa says is a direct interference by government on the country’s football, as an “embarrassment”.

“adidas™ have asked that Nigeria stop wearing their brand with immediate effect after what they described as an embarrassment on account of the latest impasse involving the country’s football,” a top source is quoted as saying on AfricanFootball.com.

Several of the country’s sponsors is understood to be considering following suit.

adidas™ has been providing the country’s official football wears since 1994.

A court in Jos, Plateau state, passed an injunction for the removal of the NFF president, the NFF exco members and the NFF congress last week.
