Ivory Coast extends Puma Kit Deal

The Fédération Ivoirienne de Football has confirmed that its contract with German kit manufacturer Puma has been extended.

The deal was extended for four more years starting from January 2015. Puma have been technical supplier and also official partner of the Ivorian Football Federation since 2005 and will see the nine year alliance continue until at least 2019.

The Ivorians were first kitted by Puma for the 2005 qualifiers for the African Cup of Nations as well as the 2006 World Cup and have continued the partnership ever since.

Puma have enjoyed immense publicity through their deal with Ivory Coast as the Elephants, despite many last hurdle misses of achieving continental success, are still very highly regarded in Africa. Arguably home to the biggest football stars in Africa, most notably Yaya Toure with whom Puma also has a relationship, Puma has been at the forefront of sports kit supplies in the African football sphere.

Expressing their delight to be able to prolong the partnership, Ivorian Football Federation president Sidy Diallo said Puma had been more than a technical supplier.

“They not only supply us with great kits and performance wear for our teams that embody our African spirit through bold colours and striking graphics, but also support our values and aspirations,” he said.

    Nuremberg is the English spelling, Nürnberg (Nuernberg) is the German spelling, doesn't really make much difference on a predominantly English speaking board. Also umlauts and other diacritics cause trouble for the sites urls so it is best to stick with English spellings where possible.

    No, don't have illustrator. Used the SS'08 adidas templates, but I do like the Switchimageproject template, especially the Puma ones.
