FC Shakhtar has signed a five-year contract with the global sports brand Puma. The presentation of the Miners’ new kit has been scheduled to coincide with the start of the 2021/22 season.
Sergei Palkin, FC Shakhtar CEO:
“I’m really delighted by the fact that we’ve started working with the global sports brand Puma. This is a step forward for Shakhtar. I can feel the complete synergy between our team and the Puma team. We look in the same direction, and this is the most important thing in cooperation.”
Vladimir Gorobets, General Manager of Puma Ukraine:
“Puma is actively developing on a global scale, being one of the fastest growing sports brands these days. An important part of Puma's global strategy is the development of its football line. We just couldn't imagine a better partner on the Ukrainian market than Shakhtar. By the end of this year, we plan to have 30 own stores. The brand is present across all leading sports networks in the country. At the end of last year, we launched our own online shop. I’m sure that partnership with Shakhtar will allow us to continue this growth and serve as a kind of impetus for further achievements. Presently, the Ukrainian Puma team, the global Puma team in Germany and Shakhtar have been actively working on creating a new kit. I really hope that we will be able to meet the expectations of players and the most demanding fans.”
