Puma makes Medi Bayreuth latest Bundesliga signing

German sportswear company Puma has made its second signing in the domestic Basketball Bundesliga after agreeing a deal with Medi Bayreuth.

The long-term partnership will commence with the 2019-20 season, with Puma to equip Medi Bayreuth’s teams with jerseys, training clothing and accessories.

The agreement comes after Puma agreed a deal with Bundesliga rival Brose Bamberg last week.

Medi Bayreuth managing director, Björn Albrecht, said: “For us, the partnership is a really great move, as it expresses the increased attractiveness of the Bayreuth basketball program and also sends a very positive signal to those outside.”
