Puma retains historic alliance with Austrian national team

Puma has agreed a “long-term” extension to its partnership with the Austrian Football Federation (OFB), the German sportswear company’s longest-running national team agreement.

The OFB and Puma first worked together 40 years ago and under the new agreement, the terms for which were not disclosed, the manufacturer will continue to supply playing kits for the country’s men’s, women’s and youth national teams.

Puma remains the federation’s official partner for replica kits, fan wear and other merchandise.

OFB president Leo Windtner said: “A partnership over such a long period of time is unique to us, and it shows it is profitable for either side. I am very pleased about Puma keeping their faith with us, continuing to be a great technical partner.”

Austria is currently top of its qualifying group for Uefa Euro 2016, with two wins and a draw from three matches.
