New football kit deal with PUMA UKIB announced by The Rangers Football Club
The Rangers Football Club has signed a five-year kit deal with PUMA, who will become the club's official supplier and licensee for replica merchandise.
The brand has signed a five-year deal
The deal will take effect from the beginning of season 2013/14 and Rangers' team kit, replica kit, training wear and equipment will feature the PUMA brand.
Managing director of PUMA UKIB commented: "When the opportunity arose to develop a technical partnership with Rangers, we were delighted to reach agreement with the club. We are extremely proud to be associated with the club, and look forward to providing technical and training wear for Rangers Football Club."
The club's CEO, Charles Green, added: "Rangers and PUMA are massive global brands and this relationship will undoubtedly improve the distribution of club merchandise in the UK and overseas. PUMA are renowned for their technical innovation and expertise in product design and support systems and we look forward to enjoying a productive and successful partnership over the next five years."
The merchandise will be available in the Rangers Megastore, Ibrox stadium, PUMA outlets and Sports Direct outlets. The club entered an agreement with Sports Direct last year, which enabled it to end a 10-year merchandise deal with JJB which the previous company held. The new club was set up in the summer of last year when Charles Green's company bought the assets of the now liquidated Rangers Football Club.
