The collaboration, which will run for three years, will see PUMA become the Foxes' Official Sportswear & Technical Kit Sponsor, supplying team kit, replica kit and training wear, starting with the 2012/13 season.

No longer the kings of the cheap and nasty then?

This must be the first time the bin dippers have worn anything by an established brand.

Bindippers?

No points to the Forest kids for originality there. Oh, and we know you care about us really. Methinks the ASBOs doth protest too much.

So a more known brand gives them a template kit? Is that what fans really want? They will no doubt end up with a kit identical to whatever Cardiff's looks like next season. At least Burrda offer something different

Wonder if they'll be another victim of Pumas over used template brigade they seem to dish out for each team they sponsor each season!

Unfortunately unless your team's 'puma' kit is sold in sports retailers it will no doubt be of a crap material top that does not offer the same quality that of a nike or adidas template. Why puma? why? I agree Burrda would have made a decent kit that is designed FOR Leicester for the club itself.

The issue wasn't as much with the style of our Burrda kits (which I very much liked myself) but with the quality of the shirts.
Badges and logos falling off the shirts, sizes completely wrong, cheap feel material and so on. They just stank of having no quality control during their production lines

the burdda kit quality was the worst i have ever known. Parts of the shirt ripped of and i only wore it for 2 weeks, The king Power bit.

Puma will be much better because you can get it locally, maybe get discounts from leicester and finally shirt quality will be better
