Puma has signed a long-term partnership with Mumbai City Football Club (MCFC). The Global sportswear brand will become the kit sponsor for MCFC from the upcoming season. Puma is also the official kit supplier of Bengaluru FC.
It is not surprising to see this deal happening since Mumbai City FC is also part of the City Football Group. All the clubs owned by the City group have been sponsored by Puma in different parts of the planet.
As a part of the deal, Puma and Mumbai City FC will jointly support the grassroots development and youth training programmes. CFG is currently providing advisory services to Mumbai City FC. It has an agreement in place to acquire a majority stake in the club.
Abhishek Ganguly, General Manager, PUMA India and Southeast Asia, said, “We are excited to welcome Mumbai City FC into the PUMA Family. They are a fantastic team, with many promising talents who are committed to writing a new chapter in Indian football. It’s also great to see City Football Group’s global experience and expertise support transformative benefits for the club. We are looking forward to supporting their collective ambitions as they strive for continued success on the pitch in the upcoming season.”
Bimal Parekh, Co-owner of Mumbai City FC, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with PUMA who share Mumbai City FC’s ambitions to push boundaries within our industries and support the communities in which we operate. This coming season is set to be a very exciting one for our club, and we look forward to having PUMA at the heart of it.”
