"From previous experience of working with PUMA I know they will bring an expertise and professionalism which will lead to a long and productive partnership, this will be invaluable as we move into the new stadium and develop our retail operation. I believe this is another example of the progress we are making as a club. PUMA have associations with some of the leading clubs in world sport and to now add the name of Rotherham United to their portfolio speaks volumes about the direction we're heading."
Roger Harrison, PUMA UK Marketing Director commented: "We are looking forward to working with Rotherham United having agreed a new technical kit partnership. This will give PUMA great exposure throughout the Yorkshire area and with great kit and good service we will be an excellent partner for the club."

The two stripes on the new Rotherham United PUMA King shirt are inspired by a famous story involving Johan Cruyff, in which during the 1974 World Cup Final, he removed the third stripe from his supplied Netherlands shirt, out of respect and loyalty .to his boot sponsor - PUMA.
