Burnley have signed a four year kit partnership deal with Puma which will begin at the end of the current season, with the company supplying the club with technical and replica kits, plus training kits.
Club chairman Barry Kilby, who has recently appointed Brian Laws as manager following the departure of Owen Coyle to Bolton Wanderers, said the kit deal “demonstrates the progress that has been made at Burnley Football Club”.
For Puma the deal represents yet another British club. It already has deals with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Reading FC, Bristol City and Leyton Orient. “This will give Puma great exposure throughout the North West,” said Puma UK marketing director Roger Harrison of the Burnley deal. “With a great kit and good service we will be an excellent partner for the club.”
Russell Thomas, the head of sports sponsorship at Genesis Sports, Puma’s design and manufacturing licensee in the UK and Ireland, added: “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes with Puma and the club to produce a great quality kit and training wear range that supporters can be proud of.
