Nigeria’s Sold Out World Cup Jersey Is Reselling for a Fortune Online
The Nigeria World Cup jersey has been the biggest talking point in the run-up to the FIFA World Cup in Russia. When it was first revealed, social media was in awe at what many described as the best soccer jersey in a very long time.
Then came the news — by way of the Nigerian Football Association — that the jersey had been pre-ordered an alleged 3 million times. Now that it has finally dropped (and sold out basically everywhere), people are trying to resell the jersey on sites such as , Grailed, and eBay.
While this wouldn’t be noteworthy for a pair of limited-edition sneakers or an extremely hyped collaboration, soccer jerseys don’t really resell for much — especially if they’re not a rare vintage shirt. But celebrities such as Skepta giving the jersey a big co-sign might have played a part in hyping up its release, resulting in the current resale climate.
