The Nigerian national team has traditionally used a mostly solid green-on-green primary set with white numbering, captioning and highlighting. paired with complete white reversal secondary kits that reflect the colors of the Nigerian football flag. The green tone has changed over the years. In the 1980s and early 1990s, an olive forest green was often preferred, and jade also appeared in each of these decades. Even harlequin was used. Over the past decade, the team has apparently come to terms with the standard office green, which is most similar to the color used on the flag. Nigeria's first national teams wore a scarlet top over white shorts and socks until the country adopted its current colors after independence.
On April 23, 2015, Nike was announced as the supplier of Nigeria jerseys, after Adidas had ended his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation. Previously, Nike supplied Nigeria's kit between 1998 and 2003.
The image of the Nigerian national team has changed dramatically throughout history. Before independence, they were called the Red Devils because of their red kits. Based on the Nigerian state flag and the eagle adorning the country's coat of arms, the name was changed to Green Eagles after independence. During the African Nations Cup in 1988, they were still called Green Eagles, but after their controversial defeat in the final, the name of the team in "Super Eagles" was changed. Today, the nickname is used only by the senior national team. The national team of women is called "Super Falcons", and the underage men's teams of Nigeria are called "Flying Eagles" and "Golden Eaglets".
