England and Manchester City footballer Jack Grealish has signed a long-term agreement with PUMA, joining the German sportswear brand as a brand ambassador. Prior to joining PUMA, Grealish was with rival American brand Nike.
PUMA’s boot dead with Grealish is reported to be the highest for a British player in the brand’s history.
Grealish will now sport PUMA boots on the pitch and headline various advertisements and social media campaigns for the brand. He will start by wearing the PUMA Future boots on the pitch.
Speaking about his deal with PUMA, Grealish commented:
“For me PUMA felt like a perfect fit. They have an amazing history in football and have worked with some of the world’s greatest players. I am delighted to join the family and to be a PUMA FUTURE athlete. I am at home on the pitch and want to express myself, which is something I like about the brand, they do things differently and have a great outlook on football.
“PUMA are more than just a sports brand; they play a huge role in culture. My focus is always football, but I love fashion and style, so there are many exciting projects we plan to work on together on the pitch and beyond it.“
Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing at PUMA, added:
“Jack Grealish is one of the most exciting players in Europe, with his outstanding technical skills and his quick feet he can be the difference between winning and losing. He turns heads on and off the pitch with his quick feet and personal style which makes him an outstanding new addition to the PUMA family. We want Jack to be one of the leading faces of the brand in football and culture. Jack’s position opens the opportunities to work across many of our fashion-forward initiatives and work together with him on his many personal causes.“
