Puma is going to be supplying Manchester City and its sister clubs in Australia, Spain, Uruguay and China with kits over a 10-year period in a global long-term partnership deal.
Prior to the deal, the reigning English Premier League champions’ kits were being sponsored by Nike but they have now decided to ditch them for Puma in a deal worth £650m.
According to a statement on City’s website, beginning from July, Puma will be the official partner of Manchester City FC, Melbourne City FC, Girona FC, Club Atlético Torque and Sichuan Jiuniu FC, supplying all representative teams including men, women and youth football.
The statement reads, “PUMA’s partnership with City Football Group is the largest deal that we have ever done – both in scope and ambition,” said Bjørn Gulden, CEO of PUMA. “We are very excited to partner with City Football Group, whose success, ambition and drive for innovation has seen them setting new standards, on and off the field.”
