PUMA® and Cameroon extend partnership
The Cameroon Football Association signs new long-term agreement
Herzogenaurach, December 7, 2006 – PUMA and the Cameroon Football Association (FECAFOOT) have announced a long-term extension to their partnership initiated back in 1997.
PUMA will continue to be the Official Supplier of The Indomitable Lions and to all its associated teams including the Men’s ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘U21’, ‘U19’, ‘Youth’ and ‘Futsal’ National Teams, as well as Women’s ‘A’, ‘U21’ and ‘Youth’ National Teams beyond the 2010 World Cup™ in South Africa.
“The announcement of the long-term partnership with the Cameroon Football Association underlines PUMA’s commitment to support African football. Africa will be the center of attention with the African Cup of Nations in 2008 leading up to the 2010 World Cup™ in South Africa”, says Jochen Zeitz, CEO of PUMA AG.
With an Olympic Gold from Sydney 2000, crowned African Champions four times (1984, 1988, 2000 and 2002) and the first ever African team to qualify for the World Cup™ quarterfinal in Italy in 1990, Cameroon is a powerhouse in African football as well as in the World of Football.
With an impressive portfolio of ten PUMA-sponsored African national teams, PUMA is already indisputably the most visible football brand in Africa.
