Puma stays onside with Czech national team

German sportswear company Puma has signed an extension to its long-running partnership with the Football Association of the Czech Republic (FACR).

Puma has produced kits for the Czech national team since 1995 and the renewed deal extends its involvement to supplying the FACR’s beach football and futsal teams.

The terms of Puma’s latest multi-year agreement with FACR were not disclosed, but the company said the new contract will be effective into the next decade.

Marek Drvota, general manager of Puma Eastern Europe, said: “The partnership with the Football Association is very important for us on the local level. I’m pleased that we can build on the almost-20-year successful partnership. I believe we will manage to be a stable partner for the FACR for years to come.”

Czech Republic begins its qualification campaign for the Uefa Euro 2016 national team tournament with a home match against World Cup semi-finalist the Netherlands in Prague tonight.
