Dominant Supplier to African National Teams Adds Another
Cape Town, South Africa, April 3, 2007 – Global sportslifestyle brand PUMA® has further increased its African footprint with the signing of a sponsorship deal with the Namibian Football Association (NFA). Namibia’s national team, the Brave Warriors, will be supplied with PUMA’s latest v-Series technical apparel and footwear for the next several years through the 2010 World CupTM in South Africa.
Jochen Zeitz of PUMA AG said: “This association underlines PUMA’s commitment to African Football and specifically to the growth and development of Football in Namibia. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the NFA.”
The agreement further consolidates PUMA’s strong brand identity with the excitement and passion of African football. Adding another African national team to the long list of PUMA-sponsored teams Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon, Egypt, Tunisia, Senegal, Togo, Morocco, Mozambique, Angola and Botswana, puts PUMA squarely at the forefront of African football for the 2008 African Cup of Nations and the build-up to the 2010 World CupTM.
The Namibian Football Association was founded in 1990 and affiliated to FIFA and CAF in 1992.
