The 2018 world cup kit of Nigeria’s football team, the Super Eagles, has sold out in London with the home kit selling out in minutes.

The kit is reputed to be the most beautiful of all the national teams to play in the world cup in Russia, and had racked up 3 million pre-orders before its release.

The kit was to be available on May 29 but Nike pushed the date back to June 1 to accommodate the demand.

People were pictured camping outside the NikeTown store on Oxford Street in the UK, and the kit is not yet available for sale in Nigeria.

The kit is currently unavailable for sale on the Nike website, and Nike has said there are currently no plans to restock.

Nike UK, responding to a tweet, has said there are no current plans for a restock.

According to The Independent, not only is the home kit sold out, but also the away and training kits.

The kit was priced at £64.95.

    My experience today – woke up at 8.30am and logged on to buy. I managed to get the training jersey and the chevron designed jersey in small because I like my tops fitted when I buy men’s tops. No joy for Oga because he wears L or XL. Called Nike to find out if we could go to Nike town on Oxford Street to buy and was told that as at 6am there were 200 people queuing up and we shouldn’t bother. They said we should try JD Sports. Off to their online store and voila they had in different sizes. Oga bought some and did next day delivery. We will both wear them to the match in Wembley tomorrow. I will wear one of his (will swim in it ?) because Nike doesn’t do next day delivery on a Friday.

    Try JD Sports for anyone looking for them. Or pay double the price on eBay.

      Apparently what JD Sports have is the replica and not the original. Just checked it out.

      They gave an explanation on the website that due to some real die-hard fans needs they make their favourite jerseys available in replicas. You can read it on there.

    This is Nigerian and we are patriotic to a fault. I love my Nigeria, foreign nationals will have no other choice but to love us too. Nike better make more jersey.
