This is the fully-customizable short-sleeve home kit for Nigeria’s 1996-1998 period, when they won the Olympic Games.

This home shirt represents the most successful Nigerian side ever, which won the Olympic games of 1996 in epic fashion by beating Argentina in the final and Brazil in the semis.

This was a team of stars. They were perhaps not the best team on paper, but they managed to absolutely crush it en route to their only-ever Olympic title, which was and still is an insane feat. Their most impressive match was definitely the semi-final against Brazil. They were actually 3-1 down in the 38th minute, and the match stayed so until the 78th when Ikpeba scored to give the Nigerians a little hope. And this pushed them further, as in the 90th Kanu accomplished the miracle of equalizing with a legendary control and turn in the 6-meter box. The teams went to extra-time, where Kanu did it again and scored the golden goal in the 94th minute with an assured, qualifying the Nigerians for their first-ever Olympic final.

In the final, they encountered a star-studded Argentina, with the likes of Crespo, Ortega, Simeone, Zanetti, and Verón. The Super Eagles were down again, this time by 2-1, in the 50th minute after a Crespo penalty. However, an Amokachi goal in the 74th restored parity, right before Amunike scored in the 90th to send the Nigerians into raptures, winning their only-ever Gold medal.

Notable Players: Jay Jay Okocha, Emmanuel Amunike, Nwankwo Kanu, Uche Okechukwu, Taribo West, Sunday Oliseh, Tijani Babangida, Victor Ikpeba, Daniel Amokachi

You’ll always be satisfied with your purchase.

If you have any problems with your order, we are one message away from making it right. Any concerns you have. You have our word.

  1. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If one of your shirts has a defect or is not up to standards, we will make it right. We are very flexible with returns and refunds, and always treat our customers with care.
  2. We cannot currently guarantee shipping time due to the current situation. Usually, all your jerseys arrive within 40 days of the purchase by ePacket (usually 2-3 weeks), within 60 by China Post (Usually 4-5 weeks). However, there currently are global shipping delays, some which take 1-2 weeks and others one month, and we must all be patient. All your orders will get to your door, but it might take a bit longer than usual.
  3. We will always curate and find new unique, beautiful old school jerseys. Our goal is to have the store with the most beautiful, aesthetically-pleasing, and historical jerseys.

We accept returns up to 60 days after the reception of your package.

If there’s any problem at all with your jersey, we will make it right. These are our terms for the returns:

  • If it has fabrication defects or has other unpardonable problems, we offer you a refund or replacement upon proof with a picture.
  • We accept returns for intact jerseys that still have their tags on. If you have removed the tags and used the jersey we won’t accept your return.
  • If it’s a mistake on our end, and the shirt is damaged or has defects, we pay the return shipping. If you simply don’t like it and want to return it, you pay the shipping. Another small way of highlighting our superior customer service.

It all started when we were around 5 or 6 years old…

We would go to school in the day, and then go back home. Then, we’d be out and about for the rest of the day. We were playing football with the rest of the kids from around our home all day.

We were playing for hours, and we never stopped, even if our moms called us to get inside. We would yell “10 more minutes!”, right before spending another two hours on the field.

It didn’t matter whether it was sunny, rainy, or there was a snowstorm. We were still playing, from Spring to Winter, every single day.

And we were wearing the same jerseys you can find on our store. We are more than a jersey company…

We want to help you Relive the Memories Through Old-School Jerseys.
