PUMA have entered into a long-term partnership with the Egyptian Football Association, which will see the German sportswear manufacturers replace adidas as one of Africa’s most successful football nation’s kit supplier.
The EFA and PUMA have once again teamed up in a deal that will see the famous brand supply football apparel to the various national teams in the country’s youth and senior set-ups.
Previous kit supplier adidas ended their sponsorship with Egypt in 2018, which paved the way for PUMA’s relationship with the EFA.
The deal is seen as a statement of intent by PUMA, which is the leading kit supplier of national teams in Africa.
“Egypt has an amazing track record and we are very excited to once again supply them with our products,” Johan Adamsson, Director of Sports Marketing & Sports Licensing at PUMA, said.
“We hope that PUMA and the Pharaohs can continue where they left off, by taking the title in the next Africa Cup of Nations in 2019.
“It is great to be back with the big cat in 2019.”
Egypt will be hoping that the partnership can help bring back the glory days – the Pharaohs won three consecutive continental titles between 2006 and 2010 wearing PUMA kits.
