The Nigerian Premier League (NPL) has signed a kit deal with sports manufacturing company Nike to manufacture kits for players of all 20 Premier League clubs and the production of a NPL Matchball with Globacom and the Premier League Bank inscribed on the ball.

As of the 2007/08 season the league is known as the Globacom Premier League, due to sponsorship from the Globacom telecomunications company.

Chairman of NPL, Chief Oyuki Obaseki said that the ball and kits will be supplied to all the Nigerian Premier League clubs and will be used during the current season.

The world football governing body, FIFA in its latest ranking rated the Nigeria Premier League as the fourth best organised league in Africa and 36th best organised league in the world.

Nigeria Premier League Board Chairman, Chief Oyuki Obaseki, who reveled this at an inter-active session with reporters in Abuja, explained that Nigeria is behind Egypt, Tunisia and Cameroon.

Nike will then take Nigeria\'s national team (In time).<br /><br />And then who knows, maybe in some years from now there will be the \" Nike Fifa World Cup\".<br /><br />Don\'t snigger it could really happen.

Im not completely against a brand sponsoring a whole league, like with MLS. But in this case I know the Nigerian teams will get the most plain and boring teamwear shirts, so its not like anybody outside Nigeria would ever notice....

Like communism, this idea works in principle.

...Please don\'t ever let this happen to a proper league all clubs should have their own individual designs and be free to choose whoever they want to make it. I don\'t imagine there is a massive call for replicas in the Nigerian league at present so I don\'t really understand why NIKE would do this. I expect its a cunning ruse to get more oil out of the country and into the US economy;-) Conspiracy theory anyone ??
